Peer group pressure

OK, so I actually made this frock weeks ago (just before Pavilion) and didn't post it. Hopefully I shall now redeem myself.

It's made with some fabric from the Fifties Fair (I thought it was Rayon, but the chap who I am currently learning pattern cutting from says polyester /ramie). It has a nice swoosh anyway. I adapted good old sweetie to get a more forties look (inspired by the Ashley dress from Trashy Diva). I ended up having to put some elastic at the shoulders or else they dropped.

It's super comfy - I shall make more!
