Fun & Flirty Fifties Dress

0 Posted by - July 4, 2012 - Bespoke


There is nothing more fun to wear than a full skirted fifties style dress. Perfect for dancing and posing.

It’s a striking silhouette for such a simple design, so you can afford to be adventurous with the pattern. I chose this colourful print for a summer wedding guest.

I made the petticoat separate from the dress. When you remove it, the dress has more of a daytime feel. Pop on some flats or sandals and you have an elegant and east outfit.

Above is a selection of petticoats from 1901 and below is the petticoat under the dress.
