Very vintage indeed....and cute! 1953 must have been a very good year!

Perfectly adorable! You did this UFO proud. Thank you for the interfacing/facing tip, I'd never heard of it. Much nicer than a serged edge!

Wish I knew why the patterns of that time were drawn with such exaggerated curves!

Beautiful and the background story is lovely as well.

I love your blog post on this dress. What a fun story to go along with a special dress. It's so June Clever-ish.

What a gorgeous dress! Also, thank you for sharing the facing/interfacing tip you found in the Threads magazine!! I just might try that instead of serging! Great job!
