This dress is made from McCall's 5444 from 1960. The fabric is a stretch cotton and was a mere $2 a metre from my local fabric store. I originally made the dress with the pencil skirt, thinking the stretch of the fabric would give my butt some support in the fitted skirt. What happened though was that my butt got way too much ease and did what it does. It was not a good look. I may make this dress again in a thick and supportive fabric.
I was a good blogger today and took some close ups of my bound button holes and my flash vintage buckle. With practice those bound buttonholes will look very posh indeed. The belt needed to be a couple of mm's slimmer to fit better. I think I will make another belt in black and the removable collar in black too.
