when i first saw this fabric
i think i screamed out loud
and ladies at the fabric store looked at me as if i was a lunatic
it has hundreds of penny-farthings printed on it
it’s like a dream come true
i wanted to make it into burda peter pan dress
i cut pattern pieces
started sewing and almost finished it
sewed the zipper and everything
tried it on
and it was a disaster
and i was warned by anajan that peter pan dress has a strange fit
wide all over
but i still wanted to give it a try
and failed miserably
so.. i seam ripped the whole thing
and then hide it somewhere
then i found this collar at flea market
well.. i find a shirt with it.. but shirt was polyester horror
and ended up in garbage
i decided to make peter pan dress all over again
only mine version, not burda’s
i used basic bodice pattern i had
changed the neckline according to lace collar
and combined all the scraps from previous dress
to make one wide rectangle for skirt
would be happier with fuller skirt
but there wasn’t any fabric left in my stash
nor in the fabric store
i wore the dress for my b-day party the other day
and was very happy with it in the end
what do you think?
