Last year I found a cute fabric, with red and white flowers on it, in a thrift store with some other fabrics ranging from the 1950s to the 1970s. I’m not sure how old it is, but it was only 36” wide, so it’s probably pre 1970’s.

Because I really liked the print of the fabric I decided to make dress Number 4 out of it. My usual 1950s dresses wouldn’t work with this rather thin polyester (?) fabric, therefore I choose McCall 5622, which was already in my stash. I made View D, with short sleeves. Although the dress was easy to sew, the project sucked from the beginning to the end.
