Librarian dress

I’m pretty sure that once upon a time this used to be upholstery fabric…but it cost me a dollar at a thrift shop and I’m loving orange this season. I thought it’s stiffness would go well with McCalls 9426, one of the first vintage patterns I bought about 5 years ago. I’m not sure it’ll get much use, but not bad for something that only took a few hours to sew :)

Material Notes

unknown fabric, vintage piping, invisible zipper


Garment Type

    That is one whoop-ass dress – love what you’ve done with the neckline. Nice!

    So simple, and yet so chic. I love the white trim. Great work.
