Hi There! I'm DeniseAngela and I'm a new sewist and I blog over at dame*design*studio . I love dresses from the 1950's & 1960's! I'm a little late in posting my pattern choice as I could not decide from the two vintage patterns I own! I finally chose the Retro Butterick '52 otherwise know as the walk-away dress. Its says fast & easy but since I have pattern phobias & issues this will not be fast & easy for me! This is the fabric I chose.
I will use the white & pink striped taffeta blends ( it feels like taffeta-I'm not sure though, I got it on sale and it said "fabric unknown") for the front dress part and I will use this black cotton, linen blends for the contrasting wrap-around part. I will be using the black bias for the trim. This is also my first sewalong and any idea's, comments are very helpful to me! Thanks!
