Subversive Femme

Weddings, parties, anything?

You know that perfect dress, the one you can wear anywhere: picnic in the park, a date, a wedding, drinks with friends?

Could it be this dress?

1950s dress pattern plaid picnic gingham plus size xl femme

It’s from the fabulous Butchwax Vintage – plaid and tassels yes please.

I think I prefer the modesty panel version on the right though.

Sadly, since it’s not my size this means I must make my own, and I’m using the Billie Jean pattern from BlueGingerDoll as a starting point.

Cross your fingers for me!
