Sewing Diversion

60s spot dressI’ve been sewing from Vintage patterns lately. This modern Butterick shift dress pattern with a turned boatneck collar worked a treat in fabric purchased from Tessuti – a kinda 60s look (and early Elvis hair). And don’t I match the blue Gordon Andrews’ Rondo chair perfectly?

It’s hard to sew when Miss Trixie exercises her rights to sit on anything papery or vaguely mat-like!

      Thankyou Jen! I’d only bought 1.25m of fabric (110 width), intending to make a skirt. But I was inspired to make a dress and found a way to fit the pattern pieces!
