I subscribed to this site some months ago, and love to get the weekly review, and intended each week to post somthing, and  now here it is!

I am working my way through some vintage patterns, and including some upcycling in the mix.  Years ago, I adored english smocking and did a few pieces in it (mainly nightdresses), it uses up a lot of fabric (times 3) whereas this dress didn’t.    I got a purple shantung maxi skirt in charity shop, and made this for my sister (who kindly bought me the diane keay smocking book all those years ago.)
