1954 Party Dresses

Great pattern. Instructions are very clear and fit is perfect. Because of the details on this dress it does take a little more time but it is well worth it

1954 Party Dress: I enjoyed

1954 Party Dress: I enjoyed making the dress. I used a cotton fabric - white with thin green stripes. I used store bought satin piping (green) and I omitted the pockets. The instructions were very clear but I had some difficulty with the back opening and placket. All and all, I enjoyed sewing this outfit.
