Of course, as soon as I finish something, I have to start another project within seconds.
This time, I searched through Amanda's Vintage Pattern Collection (that she has dearly loaned me) to find a 32 or 34 bust, so I didn't have the heartbreak of making a dress up in a size too big. And heartbreak for me is often quickly fixed by zillions of vintage patterns and other fabulous materials in the stash, and the endless possibilities for more frocks.
So the Butterick 9792 seems to be the best fit, and I've found some sheen material in purple, with black flecks, that I'll try the view B. I've done heaps of larger skirts recently, so would love to try something fitted (a la The Freelancer's Fashion Blog's wiggle dresses) but I'm not sure the scoopy top bit will suit me. Let's wait and see shall we!?
Looks simple enough! I thought I might omit the facing and try for bias binding in the same fabric, I adore neatness underneath and not flappy facing pieces. I'll keep you posted though, it could be a shamozzle!
Happy Saturday to you!
