The Challenge: #6 Out of your comfort zone
Fabric: Floral print cotton
Pattern: McCalls 6959
Year: 1940's (and could even work for early 50's)
Notions: Bias binding, thread.
How historically accurate is it? I based it off the period images I found on pinterest and the sewing patterns of the day.
Hours to complete: Well I sorta lost track, stopping and starting. Took me ages to get the fit right but once that was done it was fairly quick to sew up.
First worn: Today for pics.
Total cost: It was all from my stash so cost me nothing but the fabric was probably around the £5 per metre mark.
