I was over the moon when I came across this fabric 4 months ago in an Op Shop. It was origionally in the form of a round table cloth with a garish blue tassle trim – I fell in love! I adore the blue roses, they’re so bright and colourful they almost jump out of the fabric at you. I tucked it away in my fabric stash, waiting for the perfect project but 4 months past and I still had not used it – it was time for action! I pulled out an old friend, an amalgamtion of Retro Butterwick #B4792 and a bodice front from a miscellaneous early sixties pattern. I also used this pattern for my “Cherry on Top Frock” ( http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/the-cherry-on-top-frock ) And this was the final product. Its a simple pattern, fitted bodice, full shirt (this time I shortened it) and a zip up the side.
I’m very pleased with the way it turned out and have place it on high rotation in my current wardrobe.
A brilliant table cloth I found at the Op Shop – Maybe Poly Cotton?
