So while hanging out at the Fancy side of the Tiger on their fourth anniversary I found this great mauve print on the sale table! Now I can't pass up a great deal, or a sweet outfit so I had to grab a few yards... Then I dragged the Lean Mean Bernina Machine down to craft night for some intensive sewing time (when I sew at home the internets and the wine tend to distract me...)
I used my fave vintage pattern, and gave it a straight neckline and drop shoulders to shake things up. I'm still in awe of the lingerie woman must have owned in the fourties in order to be fabulous and shapely with out bra straps showing! I used vintage purple buttons and vintage lavender pearl snaps to close up the back.
I was not the only Fancy-er who was enamored with this fabric, and there are some other dresses with this fabric, in mauve and other colors. Hopefully we will all be getting together to frolic in the the park in our matching frocks, and when we do I'll share pictures!
