Vintage Sewing

What’s on the Mannequin?

May 2, 2010

I finished the first of my long list of vintage/retro patterns on my list as part of my winter Make it Work challenge this week and wore it today.

Stopping in at a fabric store on the way home despite my pledge NOT to buy any more fabric until summer in the southern hemisphere the lady complimented it, so I felt proud as a peacock despite knowing how guiltily dreamy easy it was! I have mixed feelings on the finished product, originally I had planned on using this as a wearable toile block pattern for another dress Iwant to make from this amazing vintage bright blue and red paisley I bought online, but I am just not convinced, so think I may have to stop being lazy and draft a pattern after all…
