If you’ve been following Mooshi Couture on Facebook you’d know that I’m making a vintage dress. It’s a 1950’s Blackmore So Easy pattern that I purchased from a vintage seller in the UK. The fabric I’m making it in is a vintage cotton seersucker also from the UK. It has a delightful orange blossom floral print. Just gorgeous! I’ve had this fabric in my inventory for a while now. You might have seen it?
The bodice pattern is too small for me so I’m making it with my own custom sized pattern.
It’s a fitted bodice design with short sleeves and gathered skirt. The fabric is a little sheer so I’m lining the whole dress with a cotton voile and adding lace trim to the petticoat hem. I’m also putting a golden yellow satin bias binding with lace trim on the neckline, sleeve and skirt hems. This would have to be one of the prettiest dresses I’ve ever made.
I’ll hopefully have this dress finished by the end of this weekend. I still have the neckline to finish and the zipper to insert.
Today I took a little high tea to take a break from all the hand stitching. Sometimes you just need a fragrant cup of rose tea and fresh fruit to keep you going :o)
