anniversary dresses inspired by the 1950s


i'm back. and better than ever. sorry for the long absence, but i've been paying a lot of attention to one of my other blogs and haven't thought of much i heart outside of it. anyway....

as some of you may know, i was going to make a holiday dress back in december. but things didn't quite work out. and i'm glad they didn't (for the dress's sake). i have made some modifications to the dress and it will now make the perfect anniversary dress (one year already?? ok, in a month. but still....).

this picture is kind of what i'm shooting for. the boat neck, the short sleeves, the inverted pleats. but the real action will be in the back of the dress. i'm making it up so i have no pictures to show. but i promise i will post pictures when it's done. i am also hoping to add a black patent leather belt to the ensemble. and lose the purple tights.

so, what do you think?

I think you're going to have to hike your g's. :) Seriously, though, really cute. Can't wait to see it.

Yeah, the length is a little short but the dress is cute. Good luck and keep us posted!

Come on people! I _know_ the length is short! It's an inspiration. Get it?

I totally agree that the length is too short. And the neckline is a little low. And the sleeves ARE rather short. You may want to go for a look more like this:

Now, THAT is what I call an anniversary dress!

I know it might be hard, but I think you should save that one for the centennial.
