Kent Coast, Unit...
Another Sew Weekly challenge, inspired by regular contributor Debi’s amazing creations from vintage patterns. I have been itching to make something from an authentic vintage pattern but kept putting it off, so when this challenge was announced I decided to give it a go. I’m so glad I did! I really love this dress (although I have had to accept the fact that I will never have an eighteen inch waist like the woman pictured on the packet) and I am now totally sold on sewing vintage. Next I’m thinking of making another one in yellow or lime green like the picture on the packet.
Blue floral print cotton (poplin?)
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
Member Project of the Week
