A Dress for the Symphony


The 1950s? Really?

I cannot believe that the era in which I've always been the least fond of, is actually starting to grow on me. And when I realized I needed something festive for an upcoming concert, I actually drew my inspiration from the 1950s and from a dress that has been pretty much the only dress I've ever liked from the era.

While I don't foresee it being an era that I will revisit in the future (other than aprons, of course!), it is rather fun to be presently working on this project.

Pictures? Absolutely! I may post a sneak peak in a few days as a way of tempting you to come back and see the finished product, which must be completed by New Years.

I must say it's a bit refreshing to hear of a vintage lover who isn't fond of the 1950s! While I don't despise the 50s, I prefer so many other eras. This dress style is lovely! I'm looking forward to pictures of your dress- that scalloped detail is so pretty.

Lauren, I had to smile at your comment in regards to the 50s era. So glad I'm not the only one! ;) You're right though in that the scalloped detailing on the bodice and sleeves are pretty, but I have a feeling that they won't make it on my dress. We'll see though.
