The 1966 Turnabout Dress

Happy New Year! It is very hot here in Melbourne, Australia at present, and I needed some airy frocks to keep myself cool while pregnant. I’m about 6 months pregnant now, so keeping cool is getting more and more difficult. I recently watched Rosemary’s Baby again, and desperately wanted a tent dress, so I decided to sew ‘The Turnabout Dress':

I used a checked Japanese cotton and finished with a lovely cool summer dress:

I love this dress. My blog has more pictures and details about my first time using a hong kong seam finish. Hope you’re all having lovely holidays!

  • Very cute! I was so hot all through my pregnancy-this dress is the perfect thing to avoid that!

  • You wear it well! Absolutely adorable dress (and haircut)! I'd love to see the pattern piece and fabric layout. I'm having a hard time visualizing this clever pattern design.
