Spring is heeeeeeere!



What better way to celebrate than making a 50s inspired spring dress? I used Simplicity New Look 6675 and a black and white polka dot rayon fabric (it breathes so nicely!).



I bought a one-size-fits-all petticoat online to wear underneath to get that 50s poof. (I need to take in the waist of the crinoline as it kept falling down. After an adjustment it won't hang so much below the hem). Thanks for looking, have a wonderful springy, sprungy, poofy day!




Pattern: New Look 6675

I actually really like how much the petticoat hangs down from the hem, but we don't want it falling off of you! Don't hike it up toooooo much!
