Custom Dress Wish List

A competition for a custom dress over at Shristi Studio has got me thinking about dresses - wrap dresses to be exact. I love them, yet I don't own one! Wrap dresses are so easy to wear anyway, but in the 1940s they were made of the loveliest fabrics and didn't have the often ill-fitting and gaping necklines that modern ones tend to have.

To enter the competition you basically find a picture of a vintage dress you would want copied, think about fabrics, and drop Shristi Studio an email! I think that Shristi Studio is more than capable of meeting this challenge judging from the beautiful retro-style dresses on offer already.

My fantasy dress will definitely be some form of wrap dress. Take a look at three beautiful examples of wrap dresses below.

Firstly, the lovely Fleur from Diary of a Vintage Girl modelling a 1940's vintage find.

Or what about this Swirl dress pictured at Fuzzy Lizzie Vintage Clothing?

And finally, a little later, but this 1950's wrap dress would be fabulous too! Pattern available to buy here on Etsy.
