I love this fabric, where did you find it?

There was a point last year where it came back into a print, but only for a short while. I ordered from Fabric.com. But it's out of stock again.

I always look forward to your posts as you always look great in your latest creation and so darn happy too  Grin
You have the coolest style and the clothes you make are amazing. You look so nice in this dress, and the matching clutch too cute. Thanks for sharing

Thanks very much Kiss

The interfacing was a heavy weight stuff bought from the bolt. It should be able to stand up on it's own. It's not fusible though. I use wonder under to iron mine to the pattern pieces until they are sewed together.

I just adore it! You can't even see the dinos until you are up close, it's such a clever print, and it looks really well made  Smiley

oh my gosh, you look so cute! Really nice job! I hope it holds up and doesn't deform, I have made circle skirts out of jersey before and they have stretched out of shape!

Here is a 1950s dress made from Kona cotton bought at Joanne Fabrics. The print is a cute blue background with 50s ladies, made from quilting cotton bought at a craft fair. It believe it is out of print now.
I am holding a matching clutch purse made with the print and heavy interfacing. It has a magnetic closure and I pinned a brooch from my Grandmother on the front.
This is the second dress I made with this vintage pattern, but the first time I made the pockets. I am in love with the shape of them. It really stands out in a crowd.
I used a sloper to resize this pattern. For more information about working with slopers, click here http://sew-misunderstood.blogspot.com/2012/04/ever-wonder-how-to-make-your-own.html.
The skirt is a princess cut, and I made it about knee length. I always get comments about how I should make skirts shorter. While this may work for some girls, shorter skirts are not the best for me, because I have a big butt. If you have a big butt and you sit down, a short skirt will hike up so far that you are sitting on bare chair. EWWWWW. So this is where my hemline stays, ladies!
The front is button closed. There are bust gathers instead of a side dart. It's quite a comfy dress, and I am very proud of how it turned out! I actually think it's the perfect pattern for me!
