My first time sewing with an original vintage pattern.
I used a hot pink shiny fabric (which is stretch poplin according to the label).
I made this dress so I could practice making facings and use my overlocker/serger for the first time! Exciting!!
I really want to get an invite to a fancy coctail party, I would love to wear this out :)
Fabric: 1.4m Stretch Poplin (poly spandex).
Notions: Invisible zipper (american beauty) 20", Gutermann thread (733).
One of the most beloved American designers passed last night. We look back at a few of his designs.
