1950's Ladybug Dress

This spring I had the pleasure of sewing a 1950's dress for a dear friend. The material she chose was a cute ladybug and daisy print with matching ladybug buttons.

I got to work with a vintage pattern for the first time, which was super cool!

The neck yoke with all the piping is one of my favorite aspects of the design. I love how the red piping spices up the look.

The dress has decorative pockets and a matching fabric belt that buttons with 3 of the tiny ladybug buttons. The pattern had so many neat details. :)

  1. This is such a cute dress- but it's even better in person! Fabulous job on the piping especially- I always love the way it looks and forget how much of a pain it can be.... ;-)

    1. Thank you Lily! :) I think piping is definitely worth the extra trouble! :)
