Swap/Meet Dress

Squinting in the early morning sunshine of 14 May.

Taken at Butlin's holiday camp in the late 40's/50's.  My mum is on the far right.
I finished the dress this week - it's using the Colette Patterns 'Crepe' and I found the big, splashy roses print in my local fabric shop.  I used it as an excuse to tie in with the theme of a garment inspired by 'mum'.  She's very artistic and it reminded me of something she would paint - I tied it in with this photo of her in the late 40's, early 50's which she had tinted herself.


  1. YAY! for the beautiful crepe dress! It was fabulous meeting you on Saturday!!!

  2. I love this fabric and I love your dress.so pretty.. Happy Sewing. Judy
