Inspired by some cute fabric I picked up on sale at Spotlight, I made myself this cute frock for a belated Valentines day weekend away with my Husband.
Unfortunately we forgot to take nice photos while we were away, so I’m stuck using this selfie I snapped at work one day.
I’ve always loved the Neckline on the dress on the left of the cover of this home journal, and thought it would combine really well with the drape of this fabric. Together they make a great, easy to wear, girly frock.
As always, I had a helper with my sewing. This time it was my boy, Prince. He loves when I cut out fabric on the floor, but thank goodness he doesn’t jump up on my sewing cabinet like his sisters, he’s twice their size!
As with pretty much all my vintage patterns, I had to grade this one up to fit, so I thought I would trace and scan my graded up pattern pieces to share with the world. To get the PDF pattern for yourself, just head to this blog post, or if you want to read a bit more about the construction of this dress or my pattern grading process, read this post.
