Karen is a sewing/textiles blogger in Washington, DC who started this blog with the amazing Bella, a cat who is also queen of the universe. When not playing with Bella, Karen loves to read (Librarian!), travel, bike ride, cook, eat, and sew vintage, which seems to be the type of clothing that fits & flatters me! I also share textiles from the collection my husband & I have been able to amass while living overseas & on our travel thru 65+ countries.

  • This is a great pattern. I love the name, too. Checked out your blog and like the way you used your Hapi coat fabric.

    • Thanks, Jeannie…I have always wanted to be slenderette!! at least my patterns are. ;-)

  • I LOVE this dress! The shirtwaist style is really flattering and I love the Hawaiian print fabric. I’ve been stewing about tropical prints lately, and I think I just need to buy some and make a dress! Thanks for the push.

  • Great dress, who doesn’t love a shirtwaister? And that print takes me back to being a kid in the 70’s and my favourite flared hawaiian print shorts. Aloha from Sydney! Well done, interesting blog.

    • Betty mentioned shirtwaist, too, and though I knew the word, I definitely couldn’t define it…now I know!

  • I love the print and shirtdresses are the best!
