The 2 for 1 Round Up

More droop!
One inch! It hurts me more than turning 49 this week! 
I didn't know how to lower a princess bust line on the the MuuMuu so I used ThingsBe's tutorial. I love the Interweb for that and I want to thank you all for putting this wealth of information out, I really, really appreciate it and I'm a much better seamstress because of all of your generosity.
By the way, if you'd like to make one, there was a 2 for 1 in the pattern envelope, a size 12 and a 14, so I'll send a scan of the envelope, pattern and instructions set size 14 to whomever claims it in the comments. If there are more than one person, I'll draw a name.

I have found a wonderful feedsack reproduction for JrC's dress design from Windham Fabrics and snapped up everything Heart Of Dixie had, a little more than 4 yards. 

I am still working on the doily skirt, making the muslin, but if it turns out a Craftfail, I could always order this lace skirt from La Redoute!

And finally, I CarmencitaB, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June '11. I endeavour to wear one self-made garment each day for the duration of June 2011.

  1. Ooo... I'd love it! I've had this pattern bookmarked for ages!

  2. I can't believe that I have only just discovered your blog. What a great read, I feel like I know you already. And for me in ordinary old Western Australia, it is a real treat to enjoy fellow seamstresses and procrastinators from all over the globe.
    Plus I love your frock pattern (yep, that did make me put fingers to keyboard), although I reckon I'd need the other size.

  3. I'd love to be included if you draw for the pattern. I'm in th UK and happy to pay for the postage if I am lucky enough to be picked. I doubt my version would be was good as your upcoming version - I can't wait to see it.

  4. I would love to be in the drawing for that pattern! I have a very similar dress and I just love the way it fits - it would be great to have a pattern to do other versions :)

  5. I'd love to be in the drawing too. I just made my first vintage dress, and I'm in love with it. Made me feel so pretty, but it's so hard to find styles that look just right. I love the drape on the back of that dress. It echoes the back of an 18th century gown I just made.

  6. So generous of you to do that, I would love that pattern!

  7. Love that pattern! Please enter me in the drawing. That looks so fun to make!
