Best of three

I’m starting the shiny new year by finishing a new frock. This could establish a worrying trend of a new dress made every day. Sweatshops do it, why not me?

It’s frankensteined from 3 New Look patterns. Sleeves from New Look 6728, bodice from New Look 6968 and skirt is the tried and true, best ever not-too-heavy, not-too-light skirt from New Look 6557. The fabric is a vintage seersucker.

From the front it’s quite plain and simple, but the back is a bit more fun!

More on my blog! Happy new year, Sew Retroadsters all!
