...or it will be a chilly September!
Here's my second dress for Self-Stitched September, minus a finished hem. I'll be hemming it tonight but wanted to get this posted today.
I started with a thrifted jersey knit woman's button front blouse and was able to find a solid lightweight knit fabric at JoAnn's that *almost* matches the dark blue in the print. The pattern, another 1970's vintage style (Butterick 3466), is something easy to wear at the office. Total cost was less than eight dollars and I still have leftover blue fabric. It was the end piece which I bought at 75% off.
It's been many, many years since I last had to rip out a zipper and re-do it! But it was worth the effort. I think it turned out respectable.
2 athletic tops
1 blouse (previously refashioned from a man's shirt)
.....and another refashion-able dress is waiting on the cutting table!
On the turntable during all this was "The Best of The Big Bands", a two record set. Music from the 30's and 40's. Nice.
