Since Friday was my birthday, I want to give away a dress.
I made her last February during another stay-cation. Never worn. She deserves better than hanging in the back of my wardrobe.
She’s a guilt piece. You know- good fit, great sewing, but you put it on and feel you’re wearing someone else’s frock. I never wear her though she’s a great dress- hence the guilt. A great dress should be worn. Or re-fashioned.
I can’t cut up this dress. I called her Katherine while I was making her. 100% cotton, seams serged, invisible side zip.
She’s a (c. 1951) size 16: 34″ bust, 28″ waist, 37″ hips. I made a small 1″ FBA. A larger waist might fit fine, there’s about 1.5″ of ease. The bodice darts could be let out. Smaller ladies could take them in.
“Pointed stand-up collar and raglan type sleeves are cut in one. The circular skirt is cut in two sections.” Pretty colors, just not my colors.
I left her unhemmed, but can make a narrow double-fold hem before shipping by request. Shipping anywhere.
Take her, wear her, cut her up if you want.
