It's finished! I've made my first dickey from a 1940's pattern. Here's what it looks like on the dressform from the front:
And from the side. There is seam binding all the way around and that forms a nice little tie at the side:
Here's the view from the back:
Here's a picture of the pattern again, I made view #2. I definitely want to try out some of the other styles as it's a great use for a small amount of fabric!
I think I like this cascading ruffle look best! I paired my dickey with a great black wool jacket and black pencil skirt and my favorite ness shoes. How cute is this 'Thistle Cottage'?
It's super dark now all the time in Scotland! So, it's hard to get daytime shots during the week. But I kind of like how this photo turned out (a bit of sepia tone)!
I got this amazing tilt hat when I was visiting my family over the summer in Vancouver, WA. My sister took me to this lovely vintage shop called Urban Eccentric Vintage. Do you know the blogger Vixen Vintage? It's from the shop she works at--unfortunately, she wasn't there when I stopped in but I got this hat and another amazing 1930's hat! I LOVE IT! I plan on wearing it a lot this winter.
Here's a close-up of the hat from the side:
Oh, I love it! How much fun are ruffles?
