I finally finished the hem on the New Look 6749 dress I started making last week and got to wear out to lunch with my mum today. You can read my full review on Pattern Review, but it is a very easy dress to make. I am still tossing up whether to put a trim under the bust area, but I can't decide whether to make it a white or blue trim. What do you think?
Anyhow, it was a gorgeous day to be out and about (30 degrees celsius) and we had a lovely lunch. I appreciate our time together. She is currently 81 years and still going strong. Here is a photo of us together at lunch. It looks like we are on sale!!!
I was at her place last week, and she was going through her closet. She gave me a few of her dresses from the 1960's. They were beautifully handmade, and if they actually fit me (she was a lot smaller than me!) I would actually wear them as they are current. I will post photos of them in the next couple of days.
