I made this dress from this Decades of Style 50's Diamond Dress pattern. My favorite part of the dress is the deep inset pockets at the waist. (The long zip front is pretty great, too.) I made it out of some Japanese chidori (plover) cotton fabric I'd been hoarding for a looooong time. I just BARELY had enough fabric to make the dress (like seriously, did not have an extra inch. KISMET.) I love chidori as a motif. It's usually seen as a late summer thing, so, very fitting right now, right?

The dress is adorable! I'm digging the retro vibes. I'm going to have to look into getting some of these patterns!

I love the dress! Of the patterns you posted, that was the one I was most curious to see. I like the fabric lots, too. And I'm always for excuses to wear cute red shoes.

Super super SUPER cute!!! I wish I knew how to make dresses. Would you ever take orders for making a dress like this? (I can understand the Victorian and cosplay being IMPOSSIBLE, rofl. I only mean dresses like -this-.). I just love this vintage design, and it has a good length!!! I can't find this stuff in the cornfields of Indiana, and when I find something similar on Modcloth, its either WWAAYY to short or overpriced. Just a question of curiosity, no pressure intended! X3

What a perfect dress in every way! The fabric, the cut and the fit! Love the shoes with it too! I have some vintage "housewife" dress patterns I've been meaning to make for years and I'm going to keep looking at your post to inspire me to finally get around to them.

And thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! In retropect, it was kind of crazy undertaking, but it was a lot of fun too.:)

Your dress is adorable! It looks great on you, Costume #30 (Ah ha ha.) :'D
(Yes, I saw the HCC in the Masquerade, you guys ROCKED.)

Anyways, this is HollyChi, but I lost my email/password, so I could NOT get on the other account.

I looked for you at SDCC, but I could not find you. D': I saw Judy on Sunday though, and geeked out. xD

I went as Femme!Simm (Thurs) and the TARDIS. (Sun.)
The rest of the time, I went in normal clothes.

Anyways, you look great. xD
