Dress: Made by me
Belt: A gift from Meaghan!
Here is the dress I made! It's quite simple really, which is just what I wanted. I have found that is really tough to find solid colored vintage sun dresses. So, I bought myself a pattern from 1960 and did it myself! I am really happy with how it turned out and I'm already making a new one, with some extra touches here and there. The belt is a gift from Meaghan and I just think it's perfect for this dress! Thank you Meaghan!!!
Some of you were wondering where my dress was from in my last post. I bought it on Ebay and it was made in Hawaii back in the 1950s. It's one of my favorite dresses, so it probably won't be too long before you see it again!
On another note...I'm sure most have you have heard about the terrible flooding in Nashville and other parts of Tennessee. What has happened is just so sad! Nashville is my soon to be hometown so I want to help in anyway I can. Kristin over at Leproust Vintage is holding an auction with 100% of the proceeds going to Nashville Disaster Response Fund for the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Go to Kristin's blog for more details and also other ways you can help. Lets keep Tennessee in our thoughts and prayers!
