My sister and I had to get ourselves outfits made for our cousins wedding.
I went for a fifties/sixties inspired dress complete with froufrou petticoat and my sister made a stunning two piece from some teal brocade. While we were doing this my niece has been making pyjama bottoms and a retro look swim suit. My niece's friend decided to design and them make a fitted top, it may need a little work when we all meet up again. I am so proud of them - they are really getting the dressmaking bug. Soon nothing will hold them back.
I had to alter the pattern to make it the right size (not as thin as I used to be) and because I didn't have enough my chosen fabric to make it as the pattern sleeve stated, I also changed the sleeves slightly.
All cut out and ready to go.
French seams for the skirt and sleeves and a lined bodice
Flowers made from the dress fabric to coordinate my plain straw hat.
Vintage blue crochet gloves complete the look.
