Thanks again for all the lovely comments on the 1933 dress and jacket! This week I'm heading back to the year 1940 to make a dress!
If you get the Sew Weekly newsletters (which are great because they have a weekly giveaway!), you'll know that this next week's theme is Something Floral, Something Blue. Turns out that most people have some sort of blue floral fabric in their stash....which may not be far from the truth because I actually do (one of only two floral fabrics in my stash is blue!). I got some amazing blue crepe floral fabric on ebay UK (I think 4 meters for £2.99!!) I was really excited when I got it (I got it awhile back) as the first fabric listed on most of my patterns is crepe. So this will be my first time sewing with crepe fabric and I am super excited!
So, I'm going to start on this pattern tomorrow (and you can see the fabric I am using as well):
I am going to try view B with the short-sleeves. This looks like a fairly straight forward pattern to sew. But I've learned awhile ago not to try and predict the 'easy to sew' versus the complicated patterns. The first pattern I ever did was marked 'easy to sew' and it took a couple of years (and lots of alterations), whereas the EvaDress 1933 outfit looked complicated but was very straightforward. I'll just go with the flow and see where it takes me!
What about you? Do you have any blue floral fabric in your stash? Do you ever misjudge whether a pattern is easy or hard?
