This dress represents what I love about making clothes. It was created from a vintage Simplicity Pattern, and a great print I found at Loom Textiles in Pittsburgh. The handsome and chic young man who works there helped me to choose the fabric. Also, the feathers popping out of the end of the belt were his idea. The end result is a little vintage, and a whole lotta wrong. Just my cup of tea! Tea that I would enjoy sipping while I coat left over dinner rolls in shellac to create an attractive centerpiece. The dreamy look on my face in the photos is just me contemplating making Dutch babies when the girls come over for card club.
