Basic Swinging Dress

This retro pattern was inspired by 1950s pin up and swing dancing attire. Featuring a low back and halter straps this dress flatters many figures and helps give a more hour glass figure. Perfect for summer pic-nics and beach days. 

It can also be made up using more expensive fabrics such as satin in a maxi length (Included) for a retro and fun brides made gown. This pattern has 5 lengths, peplum, which is shirt length. Tunic/Mini which is a short mid thigh length similar in fit to the mini dresses so popular today. Knee length which is perfect for dancing in. Tea length which is perfect for recreating vintage inspired looks. Then Maxi length which mimics the trends popular today for vintage inspired clothing.
