Hi again…I wanted to share with you all my great sense of achievement in fulfilling a new years resolution – unprinted patterns.  I have finally tackled, completed, and worn my very first garment made from an unprinted, perforated pattern.  I don’t really know why I was a little scared of them, but scared I was…

I made this with spotty linen, and it was very easy to put together.  My only alteration was two darts in the back to reduce the “blousiness” at the curve of my lower back.  I wore the dress out today, and received lots of great compliments.

I am so happy to have conquered the unprinted pattern – even if it was a very simple design – YAY!!!

Yeah for unprinted pattern! I have found that the mail orders from the 40s and 50s have the most realistic body measurements and best fit. I love a good Anne Adams or Marian Martin.
