Vintage Maudella 5213

I couldn’t resist making another dress from this pattern. I love the fit and the practical style. It’s just such an easy dress to wear.
This time I used a 100% cotton with a woven floral stripe pattern. I had to do a bit of careful cutting to make sure the pattern didn’t look awkward on the princess seams, and I’m very happy with how that worked out.
I just wish the fabric didn’t crease so much. Next time we head out to take photos I’m either taking a travel iron or travelling in my undies and getting dressed at the location!

  • Love both the dresses you made from this pattern. Regarding the pressing, creases from wear look just fine……………………….. I see so many garments online that have obviously not been press properly during or after construction.

    • Thanks Peggy, ikwym about things not being pressed during construction, it’s a real bug bear of mine, drives me crazy!

  • This looks great! It is a cute and easy wearing style. Ditto Peggy on the wrinkles. It looks pretty wearable to me!

  • Great dress! Love!
