A quick post to show you a completed dress from my sewdirect.com patterns that I mentioned last week. I went for the Vogue one first, it’s an original, reprinted 1954 design. It’s calf length and wrap around, fastening with hook and eyes and I chose to make the tie at the back version.
After much deliberation ( as ever ! ) I decided to use a light weight washed denim, and used a Liberty print bias binding ( it was worth buying the bias just for the big wooden bobbin ! ) from Clothkits.co.uk The combination kind of reminded me of floral fabric patches sewn on ripped jeans.. lovely childhood memories :)
But, the big question… what to accessorize with ? Well, I am yet to wear my bubble gum scented Vivienne Westwood/Melissa cherry heels… Yum :)
And… a pair of these sunglasses from Retrosun look rather appealing…. Dare I ?
Really looking forward to making the other two patterns soon.
What fabric would you like to see this dress made in ? I would love to know your thoughts…. :)
