For the christening of our first son I made this 50’s dress and I also wanted to have these ballerinas with the exact same pattern:o) I’m such a seeker for shoes and bags, haha:o) I can say that I don’t have those shoes anymore….
The dress on the other hand…I still love it! The shawl collar is really special and I highlighted it even with white bias binding.
Back then I thought this pink checked gingham was the perfect match for a 50’s pattern. The fabric was some not very fancy cotton but it was comfortable.
The pattern is Burda 8/2011, #125.
