Swinging 50s

By spotogspindel | August 29, 2010

My sister came over to get some help with making a pattern for a dress, and while she was here, she helped me in fitting a couple of vintage dresses I got from Fretex (Salvation Army charity shop). It´s always a bit tricky fitting on yourself, so I was happy for the help!

Both are from the 50s and home-sewn. The red one is in a cotton brocade, the black in heavy rayon taffeta. Or at least I think so, from the feel of the fabric, as there are no labels.

Ooo, I´m gonna be stylish this fall! 🙂 (tji-hi…)
