Well, it’s the end of December and I have made it through half of the vintage items I pledged to make! And two of them are the same pattern… What can I say, I loved the first one and wanted to get the fit to be a little better. This version is better, because I can breath and move, but it still needs a little work.
Back in January I got started on a Peony dress and it was a disaster. I moved the darts, shortened the bodice, took in the back seams and lowered the neck. Nothing I tried could get the bodice to fit properly.
During 2015, I, Carolanne Donovan, will sew up at least six of my vintage or reproduction sewing patterns.
