Remember this fantastic giveaway on Debi’s blog? Well guess what? I WON A PATTERN!!!!! It’s the beautiful 1930’s tennis(!) or otherwise dress.
I can’t tell you how delighted I am, thank you Debi! Inspired by Debi’s blog, I actually bought my first two vintage patterns last week on eBay. I was about to bid on a third, which was for a shirt dress very like the one on the 30's pattern, but decided to wait and see if I won. How spooky is that? It was obviously destined to be mine. I'm planning on making the blue one that the lady in the sun-visor is wearing.
These are the other two patterns coming to live with me:
|1960's checked dress|
I’ll probably start with the wrap top first because I’m lazy, and it only appears to have three pattern pieces - a beginner’s got to start somewhere!
I think I’ll make it in plain red (like the lady on the cover). The other pattern is enticing me to sew view C. I’ve got an urge to sew something in gingham so this may be the dress to experiment on.
These three can join my backlog of patterns waiting to be sewn (more on that in the next post). x
