I made this dress a while ago out of an old curtain I got from my mother in law. I originally made it dress as part of the Julia Bobbin Mad Men Challenge.
I love it I feel like it is such a good shape for me. I'd say the era would be 50s or 60s in its silhouette.
Dress $0 I made it from an old curtain of my MIL using a pattern from the 80s - I gave it an exposed zip at the back to make it less dressed up (I am quite partial to dressed up though - life is worth dressing up for!)
A cardi (which is navy not black) Glassons $30
my new $15 boots from Cotton on. I get comments on them every time I wear them.
A necklace I made recently
Also joining in at the pleated poppy
Those boots! They are the perfect combo for the wiggle dress - you look modern and vintagey at the same time...how do you do it!
You're right its a great shape on you! and I love that you made it out of a curtain....brings Maria from sound of music to mind ")

That's a snazzy looking dress and it's even better that it's from a recycled fabric. Add me to the list of boot admirers :).
