Ahhh…. nothing like spending a hot Aussie Xmas in a comfortable cotton dress!
The fabric is an adorable vintage christmas border print, with ‘Merry Christmas’ in different languages written across the white background – and candles across the border.
I hoped there would be enough for a dress, and after a frantic search through my collection I found Simplicity 1212 – pinafore dresses from 1944.
Did I mention pockets?
The only major changes I made to the pattern was to cut the back pieces on the fold instead of have a button back – I didn’t have a lot of fabric to work with and needed to save as much as I could! I faced everything with white lawn to reduce the fabric requirement too – the dress took roughly 3m of fabric in the end.
If you’d like to read about it in more detail, there’s a post on my blog…
Thanks for letting me share!
