50s dress with an Oo arh! twist!


In a moment of weakness I purchased a sewing magazine with 2 free patterns in it! I had a sudden urge to make something a bit different and these beautiful dresses seemed to fit the bill!

I decided to use some of the furnishing fabric I bought a while back as it would hold its shape and creat that classic look. 

I follow the pattern (ish) and decided to create two separate garments – the skirt and the top, so I could have more variety in the wear of them!

So I inserted the zip and sinply folded over the top edge of the skirt and am really pleased with the fit and the look of it!

I follow the instructions for the top too but did not attach it to the skirt. I also opens the front up to create more of a bolero style jacket which I think looks fab and something which could be slowly introduced to Oo arh!
