Yes, I bought more fabric.
I already have a lot of fabric. I've also currently got not one but two dressmaking projects on the go. And there's the teensy, weensy matter of a 28,000-word dissertation to be handed in at the start of October.
I only went into the shop to buy some more thread for one of the current projects, but naturally thought I'd have a quick browse. Anyone who is familiar with my makes will know that I'm fond of a bold pattern, so when I saw this, it was love at first sight.
It's a rayon, which only added to the allure as I want to get more experience of working with rayon. The plan is for a straight, 1950s/60s dress. Vogue 8875 (a 1955 reissue) is the current favourite, but I'm wondering if I should look for a slightly later style.
|With a possible pattern choice|
Obviously something from 1960 or later would have the advantage of tying in with my Vintage Pledge plan to move away from the 1940s and 1950s, which in turn would make me feel a little less guilty! Decisions, decisions.
