1950's inspired graduation dress photos

It's been a long time since I updated my blog last time. I've been feeling a little uninspired to do anything costume-related during my spare time because school has been quite hectic an it has killed my muse, in a way. I guess most of you there are familiar with that... Anyway, the graduation dress was finished in time and my friend couldn't have been more happier with it. Here, some shots:

I'm in love with those cute shoes she had bought...

Speaking of other things, I've also finished 18th century stays just a while ago and I wish to take some photos of them, too. And now that I haven't been making anything to myself for a while, I've also started working on new 1780's stays for myself! I'm using a two pattern mixture from the book Corsets, Historical patterns and techniques by Jill Salen. I just hope I get around to sew more in the near future than lately.
