Description

When a friend sent me a vintage 1973 pattern for a maternity “mini dress”, I just had to make it up. (After all, it’s such an odd concept! ;-)

Made in two prints of pinwale corduroy, just for the fun of it and to make it a bit more winter-friendly.

The pattern was Simplicity 5368 and was nice and easy to make up, with no adjustments needed.

There are more details over on my blog

    Stunning! I love the colours and the fabric combination, but I especially love the Peter Pan collar! So cute. Nice job. ;DD
