They have chosen a classic plaid fabric – Skylines. Composition is 63% cotton, 16% linen, 20% viscose and 1% elastane. It’s a great fabric, with enough body to be perfect for dresses, pants or anything really!
Finally I got around to making up one of Gertie’s fabulous vintage patterns from her Gertie’s Ultimate Dress Book. It wasn’t until Gertie came out to Australia and had a soiree in Melbourne that I got my act together to make one. You know how it is, too many ideas not enough time! I thought if I’m going to meet Gertie I have to at least wear one of her dresses.
I’m so happy to be able to finally show off my Spring Racing dress I made for Lincraft as part of a competition they are running over the Melbourne Cup Carnival this year. This is a public vote competition and I’d love it if you could support me by giving it a like here. Voting runs from 4th – 10th November.
