I might be bending the rules a bit, but I wanted to share this dress with you. I really want to make another one, but my sewing time is limited this month. I’ll be taking a trip to Arizona, with a stop off in Death Valley for a few days. We’ll spend our Thanksgiving holiday there with two of our daughters.
Soooo…. This is one of my favorite makes. I copied the pattern from the pattern that was enclosed in the borrowed library book. I made it in September! I hope you will appreciate it anyway.
I used the Elisabeth 1950’s dress pattern from the book BurdaStyle VIntage Modern.
I really love this book, which I borrowed from the library. I could tell that I was the first person to actually use the inclosed patterns to trace off two of the vintage looks that I planned to make. The sizing of the patterns fit me wonderfully with out any alterations. I love when that happens. I did make bodice muslins first thought, just to be sure.
