Garment #2 for the Pattern Stash Contest at Pattern Review. I can't remember how long this has been in my stash. I just started the vintage kick within the last six months so I've probably only had this pattern for that long.
I really like the unique shape of this dress. It's simple but still different than what you see today. It's got the yoke with built in sleeves and is gathered at the bodice.
I used a blue jersey knit from Denver Fabrics. The dress cost me $10.50 for fabric and I didn't need any other notions.
This dress was so easy to make- I spent just a few hours on it. The only alteration I made was shortening it of course. I made a size 14 which fit me very well without alterations.
I am very pleased with this dress. The belt makes it very flattering. I wore this to church then out for errands and grocery shopping. It was very comfortable. I will definitely use the pattern to make another dress or top.
So I've actually got four garments made up for the contest but I am slow to post them. I hope to make another four this week. Hopefully that will keep me in the running! But I have to remind myself that it's not winning that matters but making up all of these unused patterns. (Yeah right, I want the prize!)
