Vintage For Girls

I've been sewing a lot lately, and today was the first good day to take pictures in my garden. I found this lovely vintage pattern , and all my supplies for this dress at the Dublin flea market.

First off the pattern. Its a pretty demure little dress which looks like its dated from the early 60's.

All of the pieces were un-marked, which was a bit of a bummer. You just have to read the guide on the pattern to figure out whats what.

I used a piece of red crepe fabric, well I think its crepe. It didnt iron very well at all. But hey I got like 2 metres for very little money.

I added a cute little red  and white ribbon that I found at the Flea also. I hemmed the sleeves and the dress with the ribbon also. It looks cute when the hem shows with the addition of the ribbon. ignore the wonky stitching.

Below is a shot of the back. Sadly my daughter did not want to model the dress, you know what 10 year olds are like.

 I hope she will wear it this Sunday...
