I liked the pattern of the last dress I made so much, I thought I'd make another.
This fabric is deadstock 40's wool, which is really nice and warm, yet still drapes nicely and is easy to sew.
I love the patriotic colours in the print, and it matched my hat perfectly!
I got the fabric at Job Warehouse, which is the creepiest fabric place EVER. It's run by two brothers, who are at least 65 years old and hasn't been cleaned in about 50 years. We're talking floor to ceiling shelves of fabric, with the lower layers rotting away to dust. It smells of mould and dank and they make up the prices as they go. Buttons are kept in a massive box and you have to sort through to find a matching set. Zips are thrown in a corner, on the floor. It's seriously gross. BUT - you can find great vintage fabric, and if the brothers like you, it's cheap.
