More Than a Week Late and a Few Clovers Short

So I finally had the afternoon off and could take some pics of the dress I made for St. Patrick’s Day.

It is made from this old catalog pattern.

Here’s an up close of the print.

As always I love this pattern but again I forgot to lower the bust darts. They are kinda sky high haha.  I already have another outfit sewn up for my trip to Hawaii in a few weeks! Its coming very soon!

    aw! It’s so cute! I love it! I leave notes on my patterns when I have to do something like adjust a seam. =)

    I get most of the older catalog ones off of Ebay. Its the best i can find for the prices!

    This is looking great, kudos! :)
    For your Hawaii trip, you could consider white shoes and belt maybe? Or would that be too-Betty Draper?

  8. Angie says:

    Can you be too Betty Draper? or should I say, would that be a bad thing? lol

    Hey, this dress is super cute! It is making me think about remaking a dress i made that was similar to this one once. Mine was purple though.

  11. Sara says:

    This is so, so cute! Out of curiosity, where do you find/buy your fabrics? I’ve just started to sew, and I’m at a loss on where to find great fabrics besides Joann! Thanks :)

  12. Angie says:

    This was from Joanns… a good place to check is your local thrift stores, my best finds usually come from those spots!

  13. Just out of curiosity, are you wearing a petticoat? I love poofy skirts…

  14. Sølvi says:

    I love this dress! I´ve been looking for a pattern like this for ages, though it shouldn´t be too difficult to merge a couple of the ones I already have, and make them into something similar.

    You look great, lovely work! :-)

  15. Angie says:

    Yes Miss Virginia I am wearing a light crinoline tho I’d love to go even bigger!! One can never have too much poof in my opinion!

  16. laura says:

  17. Lila says:

    I love this cut!!! The pattern is also incredible and a great color too. Doesn’t get much better than that.
