My latest Sewing Project!

Wednesday, 21 November 2012

Hi everyone,

Wow three blog posts over two days! You can tell that I have finished university... I completed this dress a couple of days ago. I used a vintage 1950s pattern and vintage fabric!

It's just a simple dress, nothing complicated and a good dress made with light fabric for hot Australian summer days. I could wear it to the beach or to cafes after the beach - it's a simple casual, throw-over dress for the warmer weather.

I'm starting to make something a little more fancier and tailored now though.

I made the version on the right, however, I decided not to put pockets on the dress, maybe next time.

The dress on my new mannequin, an early Christmas present from my mum!
