The Floral Fifties

I just finished this little commission. Its a copy of an 1953 vintage shirtwaist, the original was a plain dark grey and the fabric had worn a bit too thin to be wearable.

I found the fabric in a lovely little shop called the cloth shop just off Portobello Road in London, the people inside were unbelievably friendly, i've never had my fabric cut with such a genuine smile before.

  1. This is lovely darling!
    I was thinking of something similar for my dress - only with a slightly deeper v neck?

    And you're right...the people in The Cloth Shop were great! :)
