There's not much out there in blogland for this dress. I found a post about it here, but hanging on a coat hanger doesn't give you much of an idea of what the finished garment looks like.
I do prefer to be a follower rather than a leader. It makes me wonder if I've picked an unpopular style? Or maybe there are a bunch of these as UFOs because they turn out yuk? Oh well, I've made my mind up on it now. It's to be my work xmas party dress. I have until the end of Nov to create a masterpiece that has my workmates swooning!
On the offchance that there might be some great fabric in the op shop, I took myself off to the Salvos. And I found this purple black shot slubby silk like fabric for $12. There's just short of 5 metres and its 122cm wide. Bargain. I'm pretty sure its curtain fabric. What does that matter ?
and look what I got for a measly $2. A Dunmoy Irish linen tea towel circa 1970
