Ric Rac Paddywhack
Burning issue here~ need your input! I've been getting a lot of requests for this style of 1940s sundress, and I FINALLY tracked down a pattern on ebay (I guess I wasn't the only one hunting), and whipped up this sample dress for myself. These dresses usually feature ric rac trim and cute pockets, and either button up the back or have a zipper. They typically have a sash. I was inspired to use the denim/feedsack combo, I think it turned out cute, what do you think? I like how the straps look with the piping. It kind of has a 70s folksy vibe, but I think that's cool! All styles are connected somehow throughout the decades anyhoo.
So should I keep it ric rac free, or use the trim, and in white, or the teal?
I'll be sure to post some final pics of me actually wearing it as soon as it's done! Thanks in advance for your advice!
