My first Michelle

This is the first wearable garment i ever managed to sew and the first time that i used a pattern too. I used a vintage fabric (my mother bought it when i was 6 or 7, to make a nice dress for me :) ) I’m really proud of the result even though i wore it only twice.. i think it needs lining as it is a bit see-through

Material Notes

Lightweight wool vintage fabric (end of ’70s)





my mother for giving me the fabric, Burdastyle for the pattern :)

    Nice detail with the two ribbons, cute! And I like the material (vintage rules). Well done!
