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?)
