Vintage Sewing

Introduction and jungle print dress

June 20, 2009

My name is Bettina and I’m living in Switzerland. I’m sewing on and off since 20 years. This year I started sewing more regularly. My goal for this year is sewing at least 2 garments per month. This is the first dress I made this year:

I bought the fabric in our local thrift store and the pattern is from a Japanese Craft Book which is called “Retroperspective is Stylish.”
  1. Very beautiful dress!
    I went to the local library and borrowed this book today. What a nice book!
    Well, the shoulder straps were too narrow?
    The introduction says that you need to add 1cm extra seam allowance.
    Almost all Japanese sewing books don't include seam allowances in their patterns.
    I hope it helps you.
