simplicity 3461

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.

This is my second vintage dress I have completed – here is a close up of the fabric and my hot pink zipper!

My plan is to use whatever I have at hand to complete my outfits, I have been so fortunate to have inherited something of a huge fabric stash and almost everything I need for my sewing projects (hence the hot pink zipper).

Here’s the finished dress, I love it so, and I have more photos and some details over on my blog
