Vintage McCalls 9818 (1954) in heather pinspot cotton from Ditto Fabrics. I love how this dress doesn’t look almost 60 years old, there’s something about vintage that is still “new” The seams are all finished with the “clean finish” technique, hem taped & hand stitched into place. The bodice is cut on the bias to enable the V-neck to be on the straight so it doesn’t stretch & gape. Another “joining-in” project, this for #fallforcotton, initiated by Rochelle from Lucky Lucille and Tasha from by gum, by golly.
This dress is for sale in my Etsy shop.
