feldmantcat commented on the project Butterick 6582, Watch out Joan Halloway
This is amazing. I have seen this dress made up so many times, and every time it looks boring and barely reminiscent of a ’60s dress. Yours, on the other hand, looks like a legitimate piece from th…

feldmantcat added the project *Cherry Blossom Dress
*I know these are not cherry blossoms. They may in fact be gerbera daisies, but for some reason this dress reminds me of cherry blossoms, so that is what I called it.
I used New Look pattern #69…

It’s adorable. I love the fit, love the collar, love the fabric – both the print and the fact that you used bedsheets. I used a curtain for my last dress project. I also love how you styled it with…

I adore this. This is exactly the kind of outfit I would wear. I love the skirt and the cardigan, and the entire outfit is very retro chic.

I love this entire outfit. I have considered using home decor fabric for apparel but haven’t tried it yet. You have shown that it can be done and look absolutely stunning!

I just finished a 60s style sheath; I’ve got so much fabric that some sort of a jacket/shrug/bolero is definitely on the To Do list.
