1950s

chocolate play dress

May 16, 2009




this play dress pattern is by Enid Gilchrist. I was working with remnants here and love the way that the retro looking cotton print (which had a lovely,satiny feel but frayed like mad) is set off by the plainer gingham. Yes, browns are an unusual color palette for play wear but I think this looks very smart on Miss 2 (who proved to be the most unwilling model ever!)

You can follow my travels through Enid’s many pattern books here.
