I love the style and colour of this dress


Very pretty dress ! The patience to see sew all those buttons ( my least favorite part of sewing)
Love your hairstyle! I also use sponge rollers it does calm the frizz in my hair. How may times a week to use your sponge rollers?
Always enjoying your sewing projects!

I love the design of your dress. It is very flattering and comfortable looking. I don't think I've ever commented on your photography. The photos are so clear!!

Thanks all!

Irene, I usually set my hair 3 times a week, and take photos on the first day. The next day I usually pull it back into a barrette, and use side combs.

Lynne - thank you! I use the Portrait mode on my iPhone 8 plus. It's the best camera I've found yet. :-)


Love the style of dress! Where could I find the pattern for it?

Hi Rebecca,

The pattern I used was a vintage one from the 1940s, Simplicity 4662. You may be able to find a copy online, but if not, your best bet is to look for one similar in style. This type of dress pattern was quite popular and there are many different versions out there.
