Next sewing project in hand – The Purple Splodge dress
I got the material from the fab Jersey Vogue in North London. The print is a camouflage print in mauve and purples and the material is similar to a cotton sateen. I decided to copy one of my favourite skirts which has small box pleats all around and to add a sleeveless blouse top. So far I have cut out all the pieces and stitched down the pleats on the skirt. I am setting myself a deadline of the first weekend in June to finish this dress. I am keeping to the fifties feel this dress – as I did with my Olive Taffeta dress. I love the styles from this decade and the early Sixties.
