Farm Girl in a Feed Sack

Disclaimer: All resemblance to farm girls whether real or imagined was totally coincidental and almost unintended. This dress was made from a 1930s feed sack which made the sewer think of hay and barns, sunshine and straw. All we could find for the photographs was a tractor. No feed was harmed in the production of this dress. No harm to anyone, especially farm girls, is intended in this post. For a more sensible description of this creation and all the little construction details please see my blog.
Thank you for your time.

The sun is bright out here!

You want me to drive what?!?!!

My trusty little helper getting me down from there!

Uber cute!
Love that you went ahead and drapped instead of worrying about it, as I probably would. ;-)

Thanks! There wasn’t enough fabric to cut a pattern out so I just winged it.
