Los Angeles, Cal...
I started out trying to make a sheath dress from a vintage McCall’s pattern. Maybe it was my fault for making it out of blue fabric with white trim, but when I finished it and modeled it for my husband, he thought it was a flight attendant costume. So of course I had to make a quick little pillbox hat to go with it!
The dress is marked as a teen pattern and features kimono sleeves, a bateau neckline in front dipping down to a V in the back with a removable bow. It closes with an side zipper (my first time doing one!).
Thrifted poly/cotton blend bedsheet, white ribbon
4 weekly drawings, including a Grand Prize valued at more than $4,000!
