Shades of the 50's


In my decluttering I found this dress I made back in 57 or 58.  Bill, my boyfriend, was a Helicopter pilot in the Navy and was overseas finishing up things from the Korean War.  He brought me this Oriental material and I made the dress and also had heels covered to match.  The material is so lovely I have been keeping the dress.  Meagan tried it on in high school and it fit her, I don't think anyone else even tried.   Hmm, what to do with it.

I wish I could sew as well now as I did then.  I made so many beautiful dresses, suits, capri outfits...I am amazed.  All on a little miniature Singer!!
