Somewhere beyond the sea…

March 12, 2014

Hi there!

This is my very first post on this site as well as the very first dress I have put out there on the world wide web!

It’s very exciting!!

I love vintage and vintage inspired clothing, accessories…well everything really. I wanted to create a perfectly fitting vintage inspired dress pattern that I could use time and time again, changing the necklines and skirts for different looks.

So, I took this vintage pattern as a base…

I have searched the internet for more details on Reveille patterns but I can’t find anything. Does anyone out there know anything about them?

I spent many hours tweeking the bodice for the perfect fit (seem my blog for more details). But it was all worth it.

Here it is, the finished product…

Since my fabric features lighthouses and boats, I thought it would be a great idea to head down to the beach for photos.

Unfortunately, it was freezing cold and blowing a hooligan, hence the crazy hair and pained expression.

And a sneak peek at the inside of the dress. I love bias binding seams and hems. It makes it so tidy!

I’ve shortened the length of the dress for a slightly more modern silhouette so that I can wear it for work if I want to. I might make another one in a proper 1950s mid-calf length for the weekends 🙂

Thanks for reading, I hope to see you all again really soon!

Love, Eliza Brown x
