Vintage Romance

โœ๐Ÿ“‹โœ‚ HELLO SISTERS! AS YOU ALREADY KNOW, BEFORE MAKE A WONDERFUL DRESS, WE NEED A WONDERFUL SKETCH ๐Ÿ˜‰

Vintage Belle

My latest vintage make is one for Belle again, finally!ย  This gorgeous pattern has been on my wishlist for some time.ย  Iโ€™d spotted it online but never in the right size and although I know I could grade it up, but I wasnโ€™t that desperate!ย  Eventually I was offered a copy by Eleanor Meriwether who had it in the right size.ย  After sending for a whole heap of fabric swatches from Croft Mill Fabric and Ditto Fabrics, Belle picked a floral print silk and cotton voile, which we bought from Ditto Fabrics.ย  They donโ€™t have any left now, this was back in January!!!

Deciding it would be the perfect dress for the summer ball, and that summer was a decidedly long way off, the dress ended up on the back burner.ย  So far onthe backโ€ฆ
