Sewing Progress with Vintage Fabric

in 1960s,1970s,Dresses

Hi everyone! All your sewing projects are looking amazing!

I’m working on an almost-done dress out of a vintage fabric from the late 60s/early 70s which is fantastically psychedelic/Peter Max-ish. The fabric is by Rosewood Fabric Inc. if anyone wants to dig deeper on it. I’m quite obsessed with the print!

Hope it’s alright to post this as this dress is for someone else and won’t fit me so I won’t have photos of me in it later. I am requesting photos of the recipient in this eventually but I’m not sure how long that will be from now.

                                                This is what the fabric is turning into! Ahhh!


The waist will have elastic in it to cinch it. I’m so excited about this dress! The patterns are all hand-drafted by me.

Thanks for reading!
