Just a short one today, but am mega excited to be working on the most delightful 1940s vintage dress pattern. It’s not got any printing on it & has punched holes, some larger than others. The instructions could almost cover two sides of a beer mat. It has strange shaped pattern pieces with right angled seams.
I am making it with some fabric the lovely Debbie from Minnado’s House sent to me. It is synthetic, has wonderful drape & I am not sure if it is Rayon, never having sewn Rayon before??? It is quite tough though, my pins don’t like piercing it & even my sharp little sewing machine needle behaves like it’s been through 5 layers of denim.
It’s navy & is festooned with spriggy flowers & cherries. I will endeavour to insert some zig zag into it somewhere, you know me! Gosh, I’m enjoying it
Next up: I’ve finished a UFO!!
