Outfit # 56 - vintage style dress
Once a bedsheet, now a pretty vintage style dress! You may recall my messy sewing room post, where I posted the Butterick 1950s (no date listed at all, it was designed in New York but manufactured in Australia) pattern and overall it was quite easy to make, and those old instructions are just so much better and really straightforward to follow. So the wrap over bit is actually fine, but the shoulders may need shoulderpads or something, and perhaps heaps more boobs that I've got!
Inspired by my new sewing crush, here's my photo collection!
So it looks great, but I'm a little bit little for the larger top, so let me know if you're interested and I'll list it on etsy for you with the measurements! I'm pulling it in at the back so it looks good on me! Because of the wrap pieces on the front I'm reluctant to take it in further, because they sit really nicely at the moment!
I'm making some shirts now for a lady friend of mine, from so excellent bedsheets, so it's a big refashion week for me! I might quickly go and post this on Wardrobe Refashion too!
