Pepped to par-tay
Posted September 5, 2008on:
I present to you my 1950s party frock!
Thanks to Melissa at Thread Den for showing me how to make a really quick and easy net petticoat. I plan to put up a ‘How To’ on how I did it soon.
For this dress I used a reissued retro pattern Butterick B6582 which was quite simple actually. Though I did take about twice as long to complete it because I kept making mistakes and having to redo things! I’d definitely use the pattern again though.
Fabric was on sale at Spotlight a few months ago – $10 for 5 metres! Amazing huh.
Oh and this is my new (second hand) mannequin. I need a name for her – any suggestions?
