September just flew by! I had grand intentions of sewing a new dress for myself from a vintage pattern with vintage fabric for the Fall for Cotton Sewalong, but with doing two shows this month, it just wasn't going to happen.
I did, however, whip up another swirl dress at the beginning of this month and never got around to sharing it. It's made of 100% cotton, was made in September, and of a vintage/retro design so I think it fits the bill. ;)
I was lusting after this fabric in the clearance section at Joanns and stopped in during their Labor Day sale and scored 4 yards for half off! I feel like it looks a bit retro and with it being a new fabric I won't worry so much about washing and wearing the heck out of it!
The dress went together much better this time around. I attribute that to having a better idea of how much room to leave while cutting out and just doing a better job cutting out the dress in general. Next step is to trace the pattern pieces with the correct seam allowances. And make more dresses!
