I visited the mall yesterday wearing a 50's inspired floral dress that I made using the Anne dress design. It needed a petticoat to get the 50's look otherwise it was just a floral dress. The length is really more 60's because I hemmed it to my knee. That is my favorite length because I am so short. I also made a matching Opera coat that is reversible to match it. I didn't wear it shopping because it is too dressy when worn as a set. I used a vintage pattern that I ordered from etsy to make the coat. It is quite the statement...Not sure I want to speak that "loudly". It was inspired by the loose fitting kate spade Micah coat but made it longer for a dressy look. Mine reverses from a gingham to the floral of the dress. It looked really cute with black pencil capris and a white top on the floral side. In the pic it looks like a sack but in real life, it is much cuter. I promise. It makes me feel like Doris Day!
