Today I also want to show you my second entry in the Sew Dolly Clackett contest! Here it is:
The Perfect Interview Dress, Vintage Green Leather Purse, Lola Ramona Leopard Angie P Shoes
I LOVE this dress! It’s so soft and comfy and I feel great in it!
I used the same pattern as the Groovy Girls dress, but with a dirndl skirt instead of an A-line skirt.
The fabric is a lovely soft cotton with a flower print and it’s vintage too! My mother bought it in the late 80’s to sew some curtains, but never did. I’m so happy I got to make a dress of it instead!
Here’s the back:
There is absolutely NOTHING I would change in this dress! I learned from my previous mistakes and drafted a facing for the neckline and just stitched the armholes down with some tiny slip stitches.
The green leather purse was bought by my grandmother in the early 50’s when she was working at a portfolio factory. I don’t know if she sewed just this exact purse, because she told me she mostly made suitcases.
Here’s a better view of my shoes:
Yesterday had such lovely sunshine!
Just strollin’ with the lawnmower…
This is my absolute favourite dress so far! I love it!❤
Have a great day!
