Finish Objects…

Finished koigu Jaywalkers!

Having been reading A Dress a Day and Sew? I Knit for a few weeks, I got the stitching itch and decided to make myself a sun dress.

I have had this pattern for years and years and years. It was probably my grandmother’s though it’s never been used.

I made a rough version from an old muslin curtain, just to check the fit, because I didn’t want to waste any of my Liberty Sale fabric, and since that worked fine, I plunged into making the final version:

The pattern consists of little chairs.

(Can you tell I basically took a picture of my boob upside down?)

I’m pretty pleased with it. Enough to have worn it all afternoon, (paired with my mini-sweater – cute!)

I probably need either some sort of petticoat or to line the skirt at some point since it’s pretty thin cotton, but that’s an easy fix.

But overall – yay! Sundress! 🙂

  1. Oooh, that’s gorgeous! I’m looking forward to expanding my skills to include dressmaking in the future and those links are just encouraging me more.

  2. The dress turned out absolutely beautiful! I just got a vintage pattern for a sun dress, now I just have to find cute fabric. It might be a good idea to make a separate petticoat (skirt), that way you can use it with other dresses. Did you put buttons on the back or a zipper?

what do you think?
