Pin Queen to underline the dress and Steph from 3 Hours Past the Edge of the World to take a scrap of fabric and try out different stitches, interfacings, etc.
I'm quite happy with how it came out!
This was my first time doing a pleat in the back and I really love the feature! I can't wait to make the jacket for this pattern. Here's the pattern cover again so you can see what the jacket looks like:
You may remember I posted the inspiration picture for this outfit of my mom in her pink suit in 1964 with her matching hat, bag and shoes:
Well, I did find a lovely black hat to wear with the dress:
I love it! I'm really glad I stuck with this fabric as it is so soft and comfortable to wear! With the jacket I think this will be a staple outfit.
What about you? Have you ever made a wiggle dress? What about a 50's/60's Jackie-O type suit?
