Me Made February – Jeans Blue
Today I am going to show you my favourite me made dress – actually I think it is my favourite dress ever. It is so versatile that you will see it a couple of times this February in variations. To kick off and introduce you to my ‘darling,’ I am going to show it quite pure though:
With warm jacket...
... and without.
I made the dress after this vintage Simplicity pattern (No 8882):
I found it at an OP shop in Melbourne and it was about $1. I was over the moon to discover that it did not only contain all necessary pieces of the pattern, but also fitted me perfectly. No alterations were to be made. A miracle! I am planning on making this dress in a million other fabrics, among others: Prince-of-Wales-Check (in German: Glencheck, but I think the English term sounds so much more royal ;-))), black satin, raspberry velvet,... Until now, however, I have just finished the blue jeans one. But maybe now that it is Me Made February?
More wonderful me made things you can find here.
