Mail Order 9140...

Happy New Year (a little delayed, I know).
I have been sewing up a storm over these holidays, and have lots of photos to take - so stay tuned.

I have taken a photo of my latest creation - a 1960s mail order pattern.

I made the straight skirt version - view A, and it is a "wiggle" dress - since it doesn't have a split or pleat I have to take really small "wiggly" steps!

The border print fabric came from an op shop, I can't remember how much it cost.  It is a loose, slubby linen type fabric.  The pattern, size 14 1/2, was very easy to put together, and both garments were completed in just a few hours.

I LOVE this outfit!!!  I love the fit of the dress so much, I am going to cut it out of heavy card and use it as my new "sloper/block".

My boyfriend thinks this is the best use of a fabric pattern I have made...

Do you like it?
