I always enjoy collecting fabrics with quirky prints. Sometimes it’s flamingos, sometimes it’s terriers… So no wonder I bought 3mt of a fabric with thick lines made of piles of teacups the minute I saw it!
But the urge to sew a 1940s inspired dress out of a fabric filled with unwashed dishes?… That was quite new even for me
I had in mind a pattern with some gather on the shoulders but quite tight a the waist.
Actually I was aiming for a look like this:
Unfortunately I did not have such pattern. So I improvised a little using a rather dull blouse pattern from BurdaStyle :
Apparently I got rid of the collar first; then gave a V shape to it. Then I lengthened the skirt.
And finally… of course I had to pose with a cup!
What do you think? Does it look like a real retro dress even with the pile of dirty cups?
