This little number, I made in the spring. I have been meaning to blog about it ever since, but never in my mummy schedule did I get a chance to take a photo. The Frockruary challenge is especially good for this reason.
Made from McCalls's 2138 from 1969. I made view C, even adding some bead trim. The fabric is a light weight cotton, a market find, dating from the 60's. Apart from the trim, this dress is so 60's baby. At the time of making this dress I was in a hurry (I think I wanted to wear it the next day to a Tupperware party!); and omitted the facing from the arms and instead using bias binding and top stitched it too. I love this pattern, it was very easy to make, and I love that I could cut a dress from approximately 2 metres of fabric. Next time I will finish it more carefully for that posh look.
Since making this dress and reading a stack of blogs, I have been more careful in my execution. I am a total self taught sewist (apart from grade 8 Home EC) and have learnt so much since I have joined this blog world.
