Inspired by this dress:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=251682.msg2799653#msg2799653

I had 2 metres worth of fantastically cheap upholstry fabric, a night alone and an urge to fill my wardrobe with 50s dresses. And voila! I drafted the pattern myself and have made a black petticoat to go under it. the whole thing was lovely and easy to make.

Here it is with the petticoat underneath



And without




The petticoat
