I decided to join Lucky Lucille and By Gum, By Golly present… Fall For Cotton: a vintage sewing challenge for the cotton lover!
The challenge was pretty simple: You needed to use a vintage pattern and 100% cotton fabric. That suited me wonderful since I love to sew cotton.
I like sewing challenges. I can be pretty apathetic and slow to sew things for myself, so it’s good to get a kick in the rear and a deadline to deal with.
The pattern I used was the Misses’ Dress fra Vogue ( Vouge v2960 ) from 1954
I needed a new dress for work (I work in a comic shop) so I used this Superhero Action Words Adventure facbric.
I’m very happy with the result
