Reflection of the Moon Frock

Added Sep 22, 2010

Singapore, Singa...






The Mid-Autumn Festival is a traditional festival of the Chinese. It is a day families gather to admire the moon, eat mooncakes and drink tea. Children also get to carry candle lit lanterns in the park in the
evening. I enjoyed the festivity as a kid but have not celebrated the festival since becoming a parent. I made this ‘Reflection of the Moon’ frock to wear for the mid-autumn festival at my son’s school. I used this border print fabric as it reminded me of the moon’s reflection in water. The sewing pattern is a vintage reprint. Butterick 5209 retro ’47.

    My first glance said it was a dress over a tee, what a great illusion. A very pretty, well-fitting dress!
