I wish I'd saved more!
One dress I'm particularly proud of and have kept for forty years was made from this pattern and I wore it in High School. 1973-1975
|Fabric loop button holes|
My mother taught me was that a deep hem, (see above) was a sign of a well made dress or skirt. The deep hem gives weight to the bottom and helps it to hang beautifully and not easily fly up in a wind. (She also taught me to iron, which I didn't do before showing this dress.) Anyway, I loved, still do, this dress. At the time I wore it I weighed about 110-115 lbs. at 5'7".
Here are three more examples of my sewing, these are some of Noble's that I saved.
|Smocked Christmas Dress worn at age 16 months (1990)|
|Dress worn at age 3|
|My personal favorite, worn at age 5|
I'm 54 years old and it feels really strange to visit vintage patterns sites and see patterns from my life! Anyway, I wanted to share my favorite dress.
