In the spirit of Vintage May (a vintage sewing series hosted by Jess from Craftiness is not Optional and Kristin from Skirt as Top), and following my first version of Debbie's Birthday Dress, here is view 2 of the dress. It features the same A-line shape and but differs in that it has a centre front seam, peter pan collar and optional pocket. After sewing this dress up in size 5, I have decided to lengthen the hemline just a little.
The fabric was given to me from the friend of a friend and is a light wool blend. The pocket is made from a vintage doily.
The bodice is lined with a sweet spotted cotton - Garden Pindot by Michael Miller from Sew, Mama, Sew! (Their shop is closing down and they are selling lots of their fabrics at discount).
This view of the dress is inspired by another dress Debbie wears preparing for her party...
I remember loving this illustration as a child - all that delicious food!
Stefan is coming home from work wondering if he has stepped back in time! The Wiggles bandaids on the knees give it away!
I have one more view to show you of the dress and then it is time to get busy with drawing and digitalising!! Exciting.
For more vintage inspiration, have a look at the Vintage May flickr pool.
Also joining in with Show and Tell for the first time.
