This dress appeared in Woman’s Weekly in the 1970s. Looks pretty awful doesn’t it? I think if I’d seen this photo rather than the pattern drawing I wouldn’t have bid for it on Ebay. But…
Much better like this isn’t it? I’m thinking of long sleeves but I’m not sure whether short or midi. Anyone any thoughts, please? I’d welcome some advice.
I’ve just signed up over at Did You Make That? to make this jacket this year. I was going to make it in the autumn but I never got round to it. I couldn’t find any waterproof fabric so I did nothing. This year I plan to make a wearable toile and keep looking for attractive waterproof stuff. Is there such a thing? I think there must be, but where?
I bought this last year when so many people were making it. It’s a lovely dress and I could do with more dresses. So, wearable toile here we come!
I ‘ve made a skirt and nearly finished a top over the Christmas break so I’ll show some photos very soon.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU!
