Hi fellow sewers!

SewJillian's Oranges and Lemons

I present to you my version of vintage Simplicity 6926, V. 1 (dated 1977).

I made this dress last summer (southern hemisphere) and it’s just come out of hibernation for another round of summer breezes, seaside cocktails and vibrant sunsets. I’m so glad to be finally sharing it with you all.

I adore this dress. It was one of those projects that turned out exactly as I’d envisaged in my head, and let me assure you, that doesn’t often pan out for me!
