I decided to start again with sewing dresses that are exactly as original pictures from the 50s. Searching some pictures, ready set go!
Found a brilliant lovely brown fabric with embroidery already on it and started working.
A small tailored dress with a seam over the bust line to emphasize the top part of the dress is cut in diagonal line. The most common square neckline and no sleeves.
The fabric comes out very nicely and therefore I refrained from adding too much *fru fru*.
Just thought that a nice pillbox hat will complete the outfit, since in that time no Lady went out to the afternoon tea without a hat!
So said and done… and here you see the result!
