Dainty blue cotton dress made up from a vintage Simplicity pattern (6193) from my Gran’s stash. The fabric has sort of a berry-ish pattern on it and it’s quite light and airy. It sewed up quickly and easily except that I had to take it in quite a bit and I didn’t alter the collar right the first time and I just BARELY had enough fabric for a second go – whew! It almost had no collar! :)
Note: please pardon the bad hair day – ha! I couldn’t wait to take photos; it was such a pretty day!
Blue, patterned cotton. Invisible zipper. Hook and Eye closure on collar.
