1950’s Housewife dress


This is how I always look when I’m baking scones =) Of course your scones tastes better if you wear pearls when making them, and why not wear a 1950’s inspired dress to match your pearls?



“Water bath? No, wrong recipe!”



“Darling, it’s tea time!”

Finally, I took some time to get proper photos of this dress I made back in 2010. The fabric, that actually is from the 1950’s (or 1960’s?), was a gift. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for the longer skirt that I wanted, so I decided to make a loose underskirt as well, to look decent. I drafted the bodice pattern from my own measurements and the skirt was improvised with what was left of the fabric. The waist seam is hidden underneath the black satin ribbon, and the dress is fastened with a zipper in the back.
