This is part two about my 1950s-style dress with close-up pictures and constructions details.

1950s-Style Dress – Details
The pattern of the 1950s-style dress is really simple: The dress is basically constructed of rectangles and triangles.
I attached the skirt to the bodice with cartridge pleats. Cartridge pleats were very popular in the Victorian era and the 1950s saw a revival of Victorian fashion. Dirndl skirts are usually attached with cardridge pleats as well.
The vintage dress is closed with self-fabric ties and snaps in the back. I think the bows are a nice detail.
I really like how this 1950s-style dress turned out! It’s so lightweight and summery!
