Completed: 1950s Wrap Dress

And my entry for Sew Retro‘s bimonthly theme: A Little Summer Something.

wrap dress

It’s a 1950s wrap dress, made from a lime green and blue printed linen and lined with a nice yellow linen. I’m making a blouse, as well, from the same pattern, out of a light yellow linen, but as you can see, the dress can be worn without a blouse.

The dress also has little matching shorts, which feel like they go practically up to my armpits in comparison to where today’s waistlines are.
