I'm really enjoying the Me-Made-March challenge, it's been a real incentive to dig out my half-finished creations and get back into my attempts at dressmaking.
I made this dress with the 1965 Jiffy pattern I bought from the Salvation Army on Friday along with a vintage textured satin curtain from a jumble sale.
As it only consists of two pattern pieces the dress took less than a couple of hours to cut out and sew. The pattern and the fabric cost a combined total of 40p so even if it had gone totally wrong I'd not have lost anything.
Being a bit dim I never noticed that the pattern was Medium/Large but with a stragetically placed belt it's not too bad. In fact the wide shoulders give it an almost futuristic feel.
I'm kicking the platfoms off and accessorising my new frock with a head scarf and a pinny. There's a tatty old sewing stool crying out for a revamp and I'm just in the mood to get down and dirty with it.
