My Sewing Kit – 1950s Dress

This dress has been sitting in my sewing kit, waiting to be finished for a long time.  I started it when I was in my final year of university.  So it has been about 4 years in the making!  Everything was complete, I just had to hand sew the hem (my least favourite task because it takes so long!).  I finished it this morning and tried it on.  Unfortunately it is a little too big in the top (you can see that it is kind of baggy there) as I have lost a tiny bit of weight since I started making it.

Here are some photos:

The material has a gingham kind of pattern.  It is cornflower blue and also has little flowers embroidered all over it.

Shoes are from No 1 Shoe Warehouse – from their retro collection a few years ago.

I would love to get one of those petticoats to wear underneath that puff the skirt up!
