50's Flair

Sometimes all I need is a good excuse to make a dress and I will. I've had this reissued 1952 pattern hanging on my wall for at least three years now, but it wasn't until my friend announced a 50's themed birthday party for her husband that I actually took the time to make it up. Being that I hadn't tested the pattern and spent about six bucks on the fabric, it's more of a wearable muslin. But I wore it swing dancing last weekend and it held up just fine.

Hidden talents. I managed to win the bubble gum blowing contest. Look closely, this one is a double bubble. I know you're impressed, well at least the dude in the background is.
