Dress Up Party

My family and I are going to a 1950s dress up party for one of my uncles birthday. We have been busy getting our outfits ready. When I was home last, I helped my mum and one of my sister in laws prepare their outfits by making some petticoats. One is plain silky material the other has silky material and bridal netting added to give it some volume. I was having trouble finding something to wear for myself. My other sister in law gave me a dress from to modify. It originally had awful selves and was impossible to get on. I changed the top by removing the sleeves and adding straps. I also added a zip in the side. It has been a successful modification and I am looking forward to the party.


  1. Wow! You have done a great job with that dress and the petticoats are very well made. xM

  2. Hi Amy, it was lovely meeting you and your mum at the party on Saturday. Great blog! :)
