A few weeks ago, I brought back a LOT of fabrics from my grand ma’s collection. She stopped sewing a few years ago but still has more than a full wardrobe filled with fabrics. I was very curious about this sixties blocked one, so I gave it a try.
I really liked the pattern from burdastyle (june 2010-101). It can be a tunic or a long dress. It didn’t work as a long dress, so I cut it so it would be short.
Now came the time to “Pimp my dress”:
- green biais around the neckline
- green kind of underskirt
- green patches on the top
- buttons on the patches (hearts from the 80’s from my grandma, polka dots, skyrockets)
On the pictures, I am playing with my mini greenhouse. It was a gift from my man, with pumpkins seeds!
Also, I LOVE these rubber boots. I got them to go to the hen week end of my best friend. Yeay!
