Vintage for September

I’m a few days late with this make, sorry! This was my first time ever making a vintage pattern and it didn’t really go to plan.

It may look like it only needs a decent attack from the iron (and a hem fix!) in this pic but the back reveals the unironed horror a little more

Then there is the collar…

Oops! I still think the dress is really cute though, I just need to put some work into fixing the hem, collar and wrinkliness!
More details on my blog!

  1. very cute dress! You can still top stitch the collar, that would add a nice finish and keep it laying flat for you. I too hate to iron, but find doing so during the sewing process makes everything go so much more smoothly. Great Job!!

  2. an incredibly cute dress !
    you look gorgeous and I think the first photo shows the potential this dress has going for it, so please feel encouraged to fix any minor problems, as I think it will be worth it and you will get lots of wear out of this great little vintage number ! 🙂
