Another garment made with thanks to grandma's stash of fabric! In this case, there were a variety of pieces of vintage crepe in various pastel shades and a broad range of qualities. None of the pieces was large enough on its own to make a complete garment. Some of them had annoying moth holes, and others had some unusual patterns across them caused by fading. However, after a bit of laundering and sorting I was able to get enough usable pieces together to make this paneled shift dress. I liked the areas of fading on the blue fabric, particularly as they almost match the shade of pink, so I decided to incorporate them into the dress.
The pattern came courtesy of Prima magazine (who now also helpfully have a website http://www.prima.co.uk/ where you can find details to order some of their sewing patterns). I'm looking forward to trying some of their other designs soon.
