Isn't this dress amazing??? I had to wear a girdle (not a joke) to get this over my butt and hips, but it was worth it.
I got this handmade vintage dress from Etsy, from a shop that unfortunately has closed since. Not only is it a beautiful find, it also has lots of hand-made details that the 1950's were known for. Clothing construction in the 1950's was pretty amazing and something I definitely want to learn more about and emulate.
This dress features a mandarin collar and is made out of a silky material which is very very delicate. I wore it (carefully) with a beaded belt and my tan Dillard's pumps.
I am really on a vintage sewing kick, and wonderful pieces like this really teach me a lot. Also, I can't wait to wear it again!
