Hello peeps! There’s some kind of an outbreak out there in the internets, namely New look 6000 in all its glory! I thought I would share a few of the early symptoms I’ve spotted [groan] because judging by Twitter, there’s a danger that we’re not over the worst & there’s more to come…
Over in Brisbane, Lauren at Sew Lonnie took medical advice when she found herself covered in retro-inspired brown fabric with cream spots.
All Doc FrockFest could advise though was that there was a genuine risk of such chic style spreading: everyone would want such a classy collar & capped sleeves if she went out in public. I tend to agree & wish I’d made mine with the collar as well. It’s got such a vintage look, hasn’t it? More pics from Lauren & details of her sewing adventure here.
Now Michelle L’s signs of catching something glamorous need little describing if you look at her picture here:
She’s soldiering on despite her dots getting really dotty! You wouldn’t think that she’d caught the polkadotfrockfest bug to see here smiling like that with such a perfectly accessorised beauty of a dress: full New Look 6000 glory sporting the awesome collar and cuffs with gathered waist. I tell you what, I see every new rendition & feel jealous I didn’t make the same version myself! This is no exception.
Sylkotwist however, has reported an early temperature, Doc Frockfest described it as one of the first signs of Polka Dot Frock Fest fever.
I’d say she’s got it bad with such a wonderful interpretation. You need to check out her cuffs (in homage to Sam’s ) which I am delighted to report also include (wait for it) rick rack!!! I urge you to check out Sylkotwist’s write up to get a viewing.
Finally for this post is a recent outbreak that frankly could not be missed. How could Dottie Doodle think that no one would notice that she had also caught something spotty?
She’s made hers with a heavy jersey which has carried off the gathered waistline absolutely brilliantly. I love it being sleeveless too & couldn’t help but over hear Doc Frockfest’s advice: plenty of fresh air. I’d have to agree, with Spring around the corner I’d imagine this would be a wardrobe favorite! Go & visit to read more about her experience of it here.
Remember to keep an eye on the Polka Dot Frock Fest Flickr Group for new additions & extra features. I shall bring together more victims of polkadotfrockfest together at a later date – remember to let me know – my incoming links doesn’t always work 🙁
