A vintage pattern mash up…. the red gingham dress.

I started this project nearly a year ago, hit a bit of a roadblock on account of ah, not quite know what I was doing!  I figured I’d just use the bodice from one pattern the skirt from another and well just put them together…  I made some adjustments, to accommodate the differences, but it was (not surprisingly) not quite so simple.

But this week, I tackled it, finished it, and I love it!  I have more photos on my blog, where I talk a bit more about this crazy project.  It’s looking like it will be a hot summer this year, while many of you are preparing for winter, I’m another sewer planning summer dresses.

  • Love, love, love. Especially the square neckline at the front… and the v at the back! And the hair band is the icing on the cake! :-)
