Long live polyester!

A quick-sew project from Simplicity 6954 for those sunny September days. Why have I been avoiding polyester for so long? This dress is comfy! More details at the Hometown Victory Girl blog

Shepherdess, retro-housewife, mother, seamstress... but labels can be deceiving. I also play the sax, butcher chickens and sing in the church choir. I raise sheep and bale hay. I sew from Grandma's patterns and drive a 1950 Ford Shoebox. Life at the Willow Homestead is retro right down to the 1947 Frigidaire!

  • What a lovely photograph! And I must say, I’m jealous of your hair, do you put rollers in everyday?

  • Thanks Audrey! I sleep in pin curls about every 3-4 nights. This was Day One of a fresh set. I did a tutorial on the Hometown Victory Girl blog linked above. :)

  • Love your photo… dress, hair, bike – all of it!

  • Love the title of your post. I agree. There was a reason polyester was so popular back in the day. It’s super comfortable and its easy care requirements make it a real winner. I secretly long for more fun prints to show up on fabric shelves. I also agree with the rest of the crowd your hair is lovely. Thanks for the great picture. Enjoy your dress.
