And so Outfit #66 is (almost) finished, as you can see the hem is the last bit to sew up, as we had to catch the light! I've ironed and set the length, so just need to overlock and sew it to wear tomorrow (or Monday back at work). It's made from a bedsheet, so light cotton, and I cannot really pick the era of the fabric or print. The pattern is McCalls 3502, as purchased on Thursday in Wagga Wagga (country New South Wales all you overseas folk - and an excellent source of thrift stores!) and the nifty zipper is a thrifted 'Lightning Zipp' from some great era.
Here's the rest of the dress (and the funny photos!)
