Vintage Sewing

My Secretary Dress!

October 4, 2009

We are nearing the end of the cold weather here in Perth, so I thought I’d finish this project sooner than later.

This is c 1959 and was really easy to sew. I’ve made no alterations, although the picture on the pattern cover looks a lot shorter than when actually made up..I prefer a longer hem line anyway.

I’ve used a soft charcoal coloured suiting which has a slight fleck through it…lovely.

  1. This is just perfect Jenni! You did a great job ! I wouldn't have even notice the difference in length if you hadn't pointed it. Just fabulous!

  2. Gosh it's timeless, isn't it! Gorgeous in its simplicity too.

    p.s. Thanks so much for stopping by last week on my SITS feature day!
