Originally from Christchurch, NZ, I now live in sunny Brisbane. I have always had a fascination with all things old and really think I was born in the wrong time. I now collect sewing and knitting patterns from the 40s, 50s & early 60s.

Looks beautiful on you. I think you should consider making it in a print, too. I love the buttons.

I definitely plan to make it in a print too – now that I know the fit is really good and I like the style on

Very Nice. I love all the little details on those 40s patterns.

I really really like this dress. The combination of pink and red is great! You look fantastic.
