Finally I started sewing again,
and after some false starts I came up with this lovely
new summer dress. I uses one of my vintage sheets
and a vintage pattern, that you can see below.
Dress: made by me
Pin, green and white beads and purse: vintage
( I had to take these pix inside as it was raining at the time.)
This is the patten I used, I've been dying to try this
ever since I got it. Originally I started making it using a
red and white gingham, but I got half way through
and realized it was a bit too sheer for a dress.
I think I will still finish that version but make it into a top instead.
As you can see, I kind of mixed and matched from the versions
on the pattern. I used the dress version #2, but made it the tunic
length since I'm so short. I also left off the collar.
I love the pockets on this, they form the loops for the belt!
The green and white bead bracelet is actually a necklace I
wound around my wrist a bunch of times.
By the way,
thank you so much for all the lovely comments
on my past posts! I love hearing from you and
I so appreciate your interest.
