OK - so I finally managed to find a spare hour to finish off this dress. I am loving it, (even if there are quite a few imperfections - don't zoom in)! Having taught myself to sew I am not one to read patterns, but I vowed I would follow this one so feel quite proud of myself. I have to admit, I sewed together, then completely unpicked the yoke before sewing it again, as I got into a bit of a mess with it. But all in all it has come out ok. (I even had to do buttonholes!)
PATTERN: New Look 6903
VIEW: A (dress)
FABRIC: Beige baby corduroy for dress and yoke/trim, buttons from vintage stash.
*Note: I modified the pattern somewhat, left off the pocket and used a handmade bias for the trim rather than ruffle as per the pattern.
