Who does not like dresses a-la 60ties with tight bodice and full skirt? I’m one of those who can look at them all-day-long.
Soon my grandma’s stash will be empty, but still, there are some fabrics waiting to be used on a nice project. This farbic in particular required to be made into a nice dress.
I love the print of the fabric as well as lining. The funny thing about the farbic is that it is wool which means that the dress should be worn not exactly in the hottest summer, but rather in a bit chilly weather, otherwise it feels very sweaty. The lining is a very light-weight polyester and it balances out the weight of the main fabric.
Wool, polyester lining.
