Flannie and a V8

Here is my take on an Aussie Icon the "Flannie".  I found this awesome printed flannelette fabric and had to use it this winter.  I was limited by the length of the fabric and decided to use this 1970's Butterick 3714 A-line dress pattern. Totally cannot see them, but I'm wearing Japanese Tabby Boots, which always make me feel super fast.

The photos today were taken by the almost 3 year old ginger, which explains the angle.  Here is Gi Gi posing for me.  Such a doll.
On another note, I have been trying to be more organized and have sorted my patterns into their eras.  This is the result.  A newly moved tower of ports, filled with patterns.  Bar one, which has some fabric.


  1. Too bad we can't see the boots, I wonder what they look like. The dress looks lovely, what a clever use you have made of flannelette.xx.

  2. Omg they're ALL filled with patterns!???

  3. Oh it must be winter in your part of the world! It's so weird to have the seasons switched. Nice winter dress. The suitcases are a great idea foe storing patterns. I'm looking for a system...
