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! 🙂
