This vintage Yves Saint Laurent handkerchief features soft shades of periwinkle and aqua, which makes for the perfect romantic dress. I used my Boat Neck Sheath pattern for the bodice and Summer of ’57 pattern for the skirt, with some bows added at the hips. Available now in my Etsy shop.

I had about half of a vintage Yves Saint Laurent handkerchief left in my stash, when I received a request for step by step photos of how to make the bodice for my Fabulous Fifties dress pattern. So I figured, why not use up the rest of that hankie? And to make it even more interesting, I made a new skirt pattern to go with it. Dress available now in my Etsy shop.
I haven’t used my flower shop set in a while because I have to lug my photography studio lights from one room to another (since the flower shop is too large to fit in my doll room). So I saved myself some trouble by only moving one light, instead of both, which made for some nice dramatic lighting.
This dress is hand sewn from a vintage Yves Saint Laurent handkerchief. The gorgeous blue plaid is accented with an intricate gold and red border that I did my best to show off in this strapless dress and capelet. Available now in my Etsy shop.

While browsing vintage 1950’s sewing patterns, I ran across an unusual pieced bubble skirt design that I just had to try for myself. I paired it with a different bodice than the original pattern so I could bring in some contrasting green silk. Dress available now in my Etsy shop.
