Remember THIS great piece of fabric?
It's such a great color with a traditional pattern.. who can resist the handkerchief pattern? I love it.
Well, it started to become "something".
With covered buttons..
There you have it: a "retro" house dress.. just like in the 1930's? !! Oh, for a bun and a matching apron. I should be holding a loaf of homemade bread, don't you think?
Pattern was a vintage shirtdress pattern. I got it at a garage sale, probably in the free box. Even if I had the number handy, they probably don't make it anymore. I embellished it with piping and a coordinating belt. I eliminated the elastic--ugh.. my ever-expanding mid-line couldn't take it just now.
McCalls 4769 appears to be a decent shirtdress pattern that can be turned vintage, if you like. This image from a review written on Patternreview.com, which I just signed up for. Neat site for you seamstresses out there.
