Nothing to wear. Hardly. But what do you wear to a vintage show?
|Yes, I bought fabric and buttons.|
|This is the New Look 6214 pattern pic.|
I cut this dress out and fused it on Friday night, sewed it up and bought the buttons on Saturday and wore it on Sunday.
This is a simple shirtmaker dress. I kept adding military finishings to balance off the floral rose print. Love the buttons.
A back inverted pleat makes it easy/comfortable to wear.
This shows the waist carrier tabs and self-made belt.
The collar tab was a breeze to make. It was my third one in a week, so it should have been. See the shoulder epaulets? I know it’s not that clear in these pics.
And every seam is bound and gaged – sorry – french seams and bias binding have been used to finish each seam. This is a cotton woven so it’s going to crease but this print will hide that!
