      It’s strange how things turn… My worst fear now is commercial patterns, whereas my self-drafted is safe and friendly… I’m quite technical, so measuring and see numbers whilst drafting the pattern is so logical and fun…

    Thanks for all your nice comments! That’s really inspiring, and I promise this won’t be the last 50s fribble dress I make…

    This 50’s dress is wonderful! Love the pattern on the fabric, and the contrasting collar and cuffs work perfectly.

    Thanks for your lovely comment :) MEANWHILE that dress is amazing! It’s sooo cute and suits you so well. Well done for making your pattern. Being able to make your own patterns is the best thing ever and you’ll just continue to make loads of fabulous things.

    If this is you, you are a woman of my dreams! Gorgeous fabric (luv the mushroom :D), red cuffs & collar & belt & buttons + perfect hairdo for this retro. All you need is a soundtrack – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cb5CmkPfaS8 :)
