I made this dress in hopes of getting a big job interview. It must be good juju because as I was sewing the armhole facing in, I got the call for the interview. I’ll hear back in a few days but for now, here’s my new lucky dress!
The dress pattern was McCall’s 5637 from 1960.
You can read more about the dress and see lots of pictures on my blog A Few Threads Loose: http://afewthreadsloose.blogspot.com/2012/02/job-interview-dress.html
Carolina Chambray by Robert Kaufman from fabric.com… I love this fabric and bought it in 3 other colors after sewing this dress.
