Sew Serendipity dress

Very quiet here on the sewing front, I did make myself a dress from Kay Whitts Sew Serendipity book a couple of weeks back

I love vintage fabrics, so much nicer to sew with

It really is hard doing selfies, but here I am modelling my new dress, so comfortable and I already have plans to make another

Thought it looked better with my butterfly necklace

Here's a few vintage fabrics that arrived in the post on Friday...they are so pretty!

Bye For Now

Wow Lisa, your dress is beautiful and looks lovely on you. I am enjoying dressmaking at the moment too, I hadn't thought of using vintage fabric though! I will have to keep an eye out for that book too :)

Your dress looks fabulous. I love the matching cardigan. A girl after my own heart! Are the patterns easy to make? I haven't done very much dressmaking but it would be nice to make some lovely dresses.

Hello Lisa,

Lovely fabrics for your dress. I can imagine how soft the fabric is.
Have fun making up the next lot.

Happy days.
Bev.

Your dress is beautiful!! I love that book and have made one of the skirts and a spring jacket from it. The blue and gray rose fabric is gorgeous.
