Retro Pattern Play!

This retro pattern found its way to me about a year ago.. not sure how!!! Anyway, I have always loved the lines of this dress and today I got to play and use it as a base for a top. Bec comes for private sewing lessons and was ready for a new project. At the last lesson I pulled out this pattern and she was sold immediately. So this morning she turned up with some black crepe and we got to work.

We made some design modifications, cut a new pattern and made a sample. Everything looks great, so next lesson, we will start work on the crepe! This will be a really versatile garment and will go equally well with jeans as it will with some dress pants.
