Description

My first piece of clothing for a while, been busy with little projects, and it’s a summer dress. Who knows why it’s the middle of winter or something here…
I used fabric that my sister had bought me from the Victoria and Albert Museum for my birthday, and some dark blue cotton I bought from Amazon. I used the pattern McCalls 6503.

    Really cute! You’ve inspired me to get making summer dresses – despite the temperature!

      Thankyou- I might wear it for an upcoming tea dance that is happening for the Jubilee.

    I love the collar and pleating! Very jealous of your V&A fabric – what a lovely sister you have

      Indeed she is! I went to the V and A and drooled over the fabric and left with a postcard! I still have some left so you may see another post soon that looks a bit similar!
