    Found the perfect wool fabric that was destined for this sheath dress. Turned out exactly as I envisioned and a bit like the dresses on Mad Men. Although not a vintage pattern it has a definite v…

    chickadeenest commented on the project ensemble dress

    Thanks! I wanted the dress to be a pullover style for comfort’s sake and I thought it would change the look entirely if I used a different belt from time to time. It also made the construction of…

    chickadeenest commented on the project standing collar plaid shirt

    thanks!
    ink- I’m pretty sure I used the BBW simplicity pattern 3835 (I could go back and look through my blog to be sure) and then instead of putting the elastic on the top I added the collar.

    I found this fabric on sale at my local fabric store for $2 a yard and planned on using it as a wearable muslin of this pattern. I’m really happy with the result. The dress is really comfortable;…

    125a50c4ae37c713a45c9980f656b9c275234a8f_listing

    an attempt at a standing collar shirt. I am semi-pleased with the result. I got this plaid fabric on clearance, so I’m not heartbroken that it only turned out okay.
