Phillip Island, ...
I bought this gorgeous 50’s-style afternoon tea dress from Harem in Fitzroy recently, and have been on a mission to try and re-create it with my own fabric. I bought the Simplicity 2591 pattern, and with a bit of modifying, made this dress. It was essentially a muslin made from a vintage sheet from the op shop.
I followed the sizing on the pack but the overall dress is way too big, especially the waist.
