I have given myself a challenge, I shall call it Frockuary.
Every day this February I will wear a frock. This will not be a hard stretch as I prefer dresses, but sometimes I'm lazy and most days I have only 5 minutes to get dressed and ready.
I actually thought today was the start of February, but clever Stella told me it was still January; today was a test run. Stella also asked me if I will a different dress every day? Sounds like a challenge to me....... I'm not sure I have that many, but I will try. This will force me to finish those almost finished frocks, or alter those that I have in a basket, waiting to be altered. Time to glam up those school drop offs and pick ups!
Feel free to Frock it with me this February. Just let me know so I can check out all your lovely frocks.
Here is the last day of January's Frock. It is one I made about 2 years ago when I was breastfeeding, (you may notice the fast opening clips on the front of the straps.) It is a New Look pattern 6675. And was pretty simple to make once I got through the pages of tracing paper and found the pieces I needed. I made the pink view. The blue fabric is vintage cotton, it has tiny flowers with polka dots in a diamond formation around them. The contrasting fabric is an Orange and pink check stretch cotton. This dress fits me better now than when I was breastfeeding as my massive bosom doesn't spill out everywhere anymore.
