On Friday, I decided that I did indeed want a new dress to wear so I set about whipping up this dress.
Fabric: mystery garment district fabric ($2/yd)
Pattern: Simplicity 2509
Notions: zipper ($2), buttons ($4)
First worn: August 2012
Wear again? Yes. I want to make the sash that goes with it and shorten the hem a bit. I decided that it was a bit long but I didn't have time to rehem it before the wedding.
I did view 2 on the right.
I just paired it with my normal shoes. These ones have just about kicked the bucket though. :(
I found the most adorable rose shaped buttons for this project at Jo-Anns.
I completed the outfit with a vintage hat and thrifted belt.
Me and my sassy mother-in-law.
I also met another vintage loving gal at the wedding.
Her name is Sarah and she rocked the wedding in a darling vintage 50s dress and hat.
She just started a vintage blog so pop over and say hi. Sarah has a few of our photo booth shots posted.
