3  50's style Sailor dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TwistMySister on: November 02, 2012 03:13:14 AM
Hi all,

here is something i have just made, it didnt take long but am so proud of it.... it will go on a runway at a hot rod/rockabilly festival as i am having a stall. Cape on the back with same binding stripes, lapped zip @ back, flared skirt, sleeveless sweetheart neckline! Im thinking of adding a big white bow in the centre at the point of the neckline, and some big white buttons either side of the CF line (center front- down the middle). Im pairing it with white gloves, white belt (which i have yet to make) and a large hair lily in pink/white colour. Yay!

Thanks for looking any questions or comments appreciated and welcome!

Hi again  Wink this is my 2nd stall, which was not at a craft show - but at an event called "Burlesque, Bands & Beer" It was a pretty small local event on a sunday arvo, mostly men! I only made $50 from 7 items.... Im not dissapointed as I expected nothing - being it a free stall space, getting a ride there and a lazy sunday gig which I personally could not probably be bothered to go to! Heres the pics, i think my setting up is getting better:

I have another Polka dot vintage market coming up in two weeks. Hope it goes as good as the last polka dot did, it was so much fun and a whole weekend! Will post pics :-)

9  50's style housewife dress blue gingham! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by TwistMySister on: July 23, 2012 05:06:18 AM
Hi everyone.. here's a dress i made!

Its a flared skirt attached to a close fitting bodice (5 panels) with a sweetheart neckline & collar flap attached. The bodice part is lined, and a white matching waistband - 100% cotton, it didnt use much fabric and the fabric was about $5 a metre, easy to sew with and press. Best worn with a petticoat! :-)

Was one of the quickest dresses Ive made. You can make it easily enough even if you arent a fellow patternmaker, just get your skirt pattern [off a skirt you have], add flare, construct a calico/scrap bodice that fits to you or trace around a top you have then copy it & make tighter, add seam lines and make a collar shape however big/small and cut it out and pin on to see the shaping. Cut in real fabric and voila`!  Smiley
