Hi everyone! I bought this pattern some time ago:
But being a relatively novice sewist I was a little apprehensive of delving into the world of 40’s patterns. But, with a little more experience up my sleeve, I decided to have a go:
It was a little big on me, so I increased the seams to about 2.5cm. I still have plenty of room to pull on over my head – which is lucky, cos I have quite wide shoulders.
The pattern was an absolute dream to sew — and the instructions were surprisingly easy. I got the fabric and lace trim while visiting my family in Queensland just after New Years. I have put some more pics on my blog if you’d like to see some more. Thanks!!
