Wellington, New ...
This is the second time in a week I’ve made up this dress pattern – turns out these mid-1970’s styles are great for second trimester of pregnancy – when you’re too big to fit into your ‘normal’ clothes, but not yet big enough for ‘maternity’ clothes.
It’s made from Style 1077, a vintage pattern from 1976. I made a couple of small alterations – taking out 2" of width at the sleeve cuffs, and adding 2" of length to the skirt (and adding a pocket, coz everything is better with pockets).
More details are over on my blog
Island floral-print something-or-other from my stash. I think it’s either cotton or a cotton blend….?
