I found this cute 70s pattern secondhand- I don't look in many secondhand shops but this makes me want to! (Too bad the shop I got it from is not in my town).
Here is my toile:
I said I looked crazy in this picture- my husband said "you always look crazy!".. Thanks! lol!
I really want to work with more vintage patterns now as they don't seem to include the bucket-loads of ease all the modern ones I've worked with seem to! In fact, if anything it was too tight!
I originally thought it would sit lower than this- damn you deceptively long and slim fashion drawings! I wondered if it would be flattering sitting on the waistline so I tried comparing it on my croquis.... but unfortunately my drawings didn't look that different, lol! The one on the left is also drawn slimmer so it makes it even harder to compare. I'll do better next time!
|Okay, but for the record, the one on the right is higher on the waist like my toile.|
So, even though my drawings are incredibly similar (lol), which do you think is more flattering?
Oh and one more thing, to get a nice swishy hem like the fashion drawings on the envelope, I'm thinking of putting either interfacing in the hem, or getting fancy with it like I've seen other bloggers do and go for a bit of horsehair braid! Any thoughts on that? :)
