YAY!! It’s all done! 🙂 Well, I think I need to add a couple of snaps above the zipper, but other than that, IT’S DONE! 🙂
As you can see, there’s a bit of a gap over on my left side where the zipper is located. I’ll just add a couple of snaps there above the zipper and it’ll be just right! 🙂
Apparently this is pattern is very flattering for my body type. As soon as I came downstairs d said, “Ooh! It makes you look thinner!” I may need to make 10 or 100 more from this pattern. 😉
Check out those shoes!! Those are the pair that I got FREE from Sears for using my reward points!! YAY!!
Here’s a back view of the Retro Butterick ’47 B5209
The dress is a little bunchy in the back but that’s due to me being so short-waisted! LOL
So, there’s another vintage/retro pattern to mark as done! YAY!
Next up will be my purse. And if things go well I’ll be posting a tutorial for that tonight or tomorrow. Wish me luck! 😉
Here are the fabrics I’ll be using.
I had a lovely navy blue that I wanted to use but it picked up SOOOOO much lint that I decided not to use it! The blue here is what is left over from the What a Hoot skirt and the gold and cream is what I won from Handmade by Hilani. I’m a little nervous about this… I have never made a purse before and I don’t think it will be as simple as d’s bag…. But I’m gonna try! 😉
I think after the purse and tops for me I will make some play clothes for the cs. I’ll be sure to post tutorials when I do!
