I sewed this pattern up for the McCalls Big Vintage Sew-Along in aid of the Eve Appeal. I chose it from the selection of vintage pattern reprints as I thought it had potential to be made more contemporary/timeless as that is a little more me! The fabric is an amazing cotton with a crinkled texture simialr to barkcloth which I got at Fabrics Galore at the London Knitting and Stitching Show. I’m so pleased with how this works for the pattern.

I made the dress and the little crop top and really enjoyed investing some time into the slow and careful techniques involved. All the details on these (including my first lapped zips!) can be found on my blog here https://chainstitcher.blogspot.co.uk
