Here's how my vintage dress fits from the secret shop. It fits perfectly (just as long as I don't increase my waistline by 1 centimeter). I love wearing the dress. I can see why women of the fifties wore dresses like these around the house. It just feels so light, flowy, and pretty.
It makes me feel like I could happily sweep my floors.
My other vintage dress has a drop waist fit and needs a little work...
As you can see, the sewer of this dress stitched black rick rack around the waist and partly outlining the neckline. I'm not sure if I will complete the neckline rick rack, or take out the rick rack and add some trim. I'm leaning towards the trim.
The best part about the dress is the fabric.
Such a sweet whimsical design. This dress makes me want to go barefoot all day long and never so much as lift a finger for my floors.
