The Unique Vintage Hamilton Dress – Review

Hello again! After 3 weeks of travelling, I’m back to the world of cute sundresses and (very, very) humid days.

Just before I left, I bought the lovely and ever-popular Hamilton sundress in its new yellow and purple color, from Unique Vintage. Although I did get a chance to wear it before I hopped on the plane, I didn’t get a chance to write about it like I’d hoped! However, it’s better late than never, so here’s all my opinions on this lovely little dress (Spoiler alert: It’s cute as hell).

The Floral Silk Dress

School has been so busy I’ve barely been sewing! I have about 100 ideas I want to get started on as soon as things calm down a bit. I did, however, manage to find some time to photograph a couple of creations I made just before school began! One of these is my floral silk dress. It’s got a 50’s style darted bodice (because what else do I make anymore honestly) and a full circle skirt. I’m wearing a small petticoat in these pictures, but it’s just very twirly and voluminous on it’s own!

The 1950’s Picnic Dress

My newest 1950’s dress! I call it my picnic dress because the pattern sort of reminds me a vintage picnic blanket. I love the soft colours and the v-neck, and I’m so happy with how it turned out. Photos are by Chris Mackay. Unfortunately I didn’t take many progress photos of this, but it took around 7 hours to make, and we ventured out on a 93 degree day to photograph it. More pictures are below!

I love the sun, but oh my gosh it was bright when I was taking these! Hopefully I’m not glare squinting too much. I’m overall really happy with how this dress turned out! The light washed it out a tiny bit, but I still think they’re nice pictures and you can see the overall construction and style of the dress! The post on how it was made is here.Β More pictures below the cut!

Please note this is my last post before my vacation. I will be travelling to Shanghai, Tokyo, and Sydney (my home town!). All emails, inquiries, and questions will be responded to, but there may be some delay. You can follow my trip on Instagram here!Β Some posts will be posting to this blog but they are running on a queue. See you all at the end of May!

I got photos of this skirt the other day! I’d eventually like to try and get some nicer, not-in-my-sewing-studio ones, but for now these are just fine. I love how the colors of the skirt stand out!
