Fun fifties – and I am not talking about my age!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

My fifties inspired ballgown is on its way to becoming a reality, in spite of the fact that I still do not have a clear idea in my mind about how it will look.  The only aspect that I have nailed is the skirt, and here it is.  Nice that I have a perfectly coordinating t-shirt, eh?  And shoes that are only worn for trying on gowns.  Everyone has a pair of those, right?  I got them cheap at a competition and they just don’t quite work for my feet for dancing, so since they were always kicking around my closet, they got an actual job.

The front has two wide pleats and the back is gathered into the lycra waistband.  I am thinking that visually it doesn’t make enough difference to be an issue but  I am still feverishly trying to make this gown without a zipper, if possible and if the skirt is gathered onto lycra, I can pull it on and avoid the zip.

Stay tuned for design ideas, plans and trials.
