Lauras Vintage Fabric Dress

Lauras Vintage Fabric Dress.

Sewing classes on a Tuesday Evening with Laura I and fabric purchased at the Phillips Shirt Vintage Fabric Sale.

Laura has recently finished this fabulous dress that she made with fabric purchased at last years Phillips Shirt Makers Vintage Fabric Sale ( which is again open this weekend – see previous post ).

We initially fitted Laura by testing the upper bodice in some scrap fabric to ensure that we achieved a good “bosom” fit (Laura is tiny) , and then Laura went on the cut and make the dress.

We had limited fabric so instead of self lining the ruffle skirt inserts I rolled edged for her all outer edges of the flutter pieces. To obtain a beautiful clean finish Laura then went on to self bind the neck edge and armhole edges of the garment and finished off with an invisible zipper.

I am sure you will all agree Laura has done a spectacular job designing and making her dress. Well done my lovely Laura.

Pattern used is Simplicity Patterns #1877 and
