Yay! I’ve finally finished my first vintage sewing project – Simplicity 4255, from 1953, in green poly-cotton lawn. It took me about three million years but I got there in the end, only to be told by my loving boyfriend that I looked like “an alien queen … in a good way”. More pics and an outline of the labour involved on my blog :)
