I have been on the lookout for the perfect A-Line dress pattern that I could spruce up with different collars, bows etc, and Simplicity have gone ahead and released the exact pattern with bow AND amazing scalloped collar options included!
I am SO excited I can hardly contain myself, so I thought the best place to get excited was on my sewing blog, of course! I think you're going to see a lot of this pattern made up very soon on this here blog! Starting with the mad men challenge...
In other sewing news, I'm working on a black sateen cotton high waisted gathered skirt with thick waistband, basing the skirt on Gertie's dirndle skirt tutorial here, should be finished sometime this week. Turns out creating perfect gathers can cause quite the headache, but I'm nearly there. I'm currently all about skirts at the moment, totally boring to make but my wardrobe is in dire need of skirts, both for play and work, so another gathered skirt in brown and another Colette Ginger in denim are on the cards.
I'll update with my new skirt later in the week, cotton sateen is totally my new favourite fabric.
