The Bird Dress

This bird and flower print cotton sateen had been sitting in my stash for a few years until I bought Simplicity 3269, a 1960s pattern. They were a perfect match. The only changes I made were to shorten the sleeves and length of the skirt because I only had two metres of the fabric to squeeze all the pieces into. This pattern was really easy to put together and I’m so happy with the way it turned out.

    This dress is so cute. It’s certainly attention-grabbing and it woyld take confidence to wear it, but the print really is a perfect match to this style. Great job!

      Thanks. I like to think the fabric was just waiting in my stash until the perfect pattern came along.
