This kind of breaks my heart, but I know she’ll go to a better place, so it’s for the best.
Behold: Marian Martin 9359 (no date, late 1940’s):
She was one of my first serious sewing attempts, and I love her dearly. Alas, she no longer fits.
In the interest of full disclosure, this is a secondhand dress, but she has no damage and has not been washed to death. All sewing is by machine and all her seams are finished (flat-felled). She is made of good-quality Moda quilting cotton in a mottled rust color with small black and white stylized floral print, and black rick-rack trim. She has a zipper closure in her left side. She does not have shoulder pads, although they can be added by the winner (I have square shoulders, and her shoulder-line was altered slightly to take up the slack that would originally have gone toward shoulder pads).
She has a lot of life left in her and I would love to see her go to a loving new home.
Giveaway is for the dress only, not the pattern.
Size: Advertised as a size 18 1/2 (bust 36, petite), however, that’s me in the photo and I am 5’7″ and was about a bust 38 at the time.
If you are interested, leave a comment here or email me through my blog, and I’ll put your name in the hat. Be sure I have a way to contact you in case you’re the lucky winner.
