Thanks to my sister who modelled this dress for me.   The dress was made using a 1950’s Simplicity Pattern and I used vintage fabric that I found at an estate sale.  Sling back shoes, gloves, faux pearls, small beaded purse and a 1950’s pancake style straw hat complete the vintage look. A crinoline gives the dress fullness.

The dress is priced at $55.

Hand made crinolines are priced at $25

Check out our booth at the Carleton Fieldhouse Antique Show this Oct 25th and 26th, 2014, where this dress and other hand made outfits using vintage fabrics will be for sale. I will also have some ready made vintage clothes, purses, hats and gloves.

Please note this item is SOLD!!

Thanks to my sister for modelling this outfit for me.  I made it using a 1950’s Simplicity pattern for a gathered skirt and pullover stretch top, with crinoline underneath to give added fullness.  She is wearing vintage sling back shoes and cotton wrist gloves to complete the ensemble.

This skirt sold to a lovely young woman at the Vintage Clothing Sale in Almonte in Sept.

Hopefully I will be able to whip up more vintage clothing for an upcoming sale in October at Carleton University Fieldhouse Antique Show  on Oct. 25th and 26th.  I will have some readymade vintage outfits for sale as well as hand made ones.  I use vintage fabric whenever possible for a more authentic look and feel.

Please note the outfit is now SOLD!!
