Tiki Dress...

I have started making my tiki wrap dress for the Saturday Night Stomp that is less than a week away. (I know, I am a procrastinator). I splurged on the Simplicity Retro pattern that I had been jonsing after for quite sometime. It is Simplicity Pattern 4559 (pictured below) I am adding 2" to the length of the bodice and skirt length due to me being so dang tall. :)

I saved money on the dress by purchasing discount bin fabric from Hancock Fabrics. The fabric was only $2 a yard but fit the tiki vibe so perfectly I couldn't pass it up (also pictured below). I hope to have pictures up by Sunday of the finished dress. Otherwise I will need to find another dress to wear! Tiki drinks here I come!


  1. Hi,

  2. Lilith-

    I found it on eBay a few years back. It was quite spendy (I want to say $50) but I, like you, really wanted it. After making it you could easily make it from different pattern pieces of other garnments. I will keep an eye out. Good luck.
