It's not often that i get to make the same dress several times each in a different fabric or print. I must say that i love this Niagara dress design even more in dots than the solid pink that i usually use. Though maybe its just because its something different. Its a classic Marilyn Monroe dress that just screams 50s but is still very wearable today. All of these are cotton prints, the black with small red dots is a stretch poplin, the others are non-stretch. All have built in foam cups and faux button fronts with an invisible zipper up the back. My fave is the red with black dots below ;-)

I made these dresses sometime last year and forgot about posting them, three are styled after the dresses worn by ''Megan'' and the last was a secretary i don't remember her name. All from the Tv show Mad Men. All of these were made using vintage patterns that were close to the basic shape and then modified for each dresses specific details.
Empire waist Shift dress. Hounds-tooth non stretch woven fabric. double breasted with silver button front, short sleeves, Large fold down collar. Fully lined
Teal stretch suiting fabric, also double breasted button front, shift with short sleeves, asymmetrical collar and chiffon scarf pin, also was fully lined, this time with a stretch satin.
And finally a light blue stretch suiting wiggle dress with short sleeves and attached scarf collar, fitted bodice with pencil skirt. small gathers at the hip, back zipper, fully lined in stretch satin.
