I am slowly working my way through the hundreds of patterns I acquired some years ago. I've been meaning to make this one up for quite some time now. It turned out great and I've now decided I need more blue dresses in my life. Smiley

As much as I hate princess seams and these dresses that have multiple panel pieces, I just keep coming back for more because the fit is so beautiful. It's fully lined as well so I basically had to make the whole thing twice then stitch it to the facing. Shocked

It may be winter here but it is such fantastic weather outside today!

Here is the pattern I used. It looks very 80s/90s in the picture but I was going for more of a 50s look with my version and styling. How did I go?

Such a great dress! It looks absolutely adorable on you!! I love the neckline! And you definitely got the 50's look by shortening the skirt. SO 80's with the skirt to the floor. Great job!! It looks beautiful and could pass for store bought!

Fantastic dress, I love the colour and it is def a '50's style, it surprises me that it was an '80's pattern Smiley  I really love the neckline.
