Great British Sewing Bee Episode 3

Vintage week.  Yahoo ! Oh I love vintage patterns. Sadly until I get to grips with my weight loss I do not have the waist that would do this dress justice but this is my goal. In fact this is what I put on my ww form. To get a waist so I can make myself this dress and do it justice. !

imageI was made over when I realised that the Walk Away dress that the contestants started the show off making is a pattern I own. Its a Butterick Pattern.

I bought the fabric from the lovely Hayley at Cotton Kisses. http://www.cottonkisses.co/

B4790 MISSES’ WRAP DRESS | VERY EASY | VINTAGE I bought mine here on the Jaycotts website.   There is also apparently a version of it in the Sewing Bee book which I might just splash out & buy myself.

I also found this terrific blog post by Katrina who had a go at this pattern & found she had to make some adjustments to get it to look right. Her post is really informative and interesting.

Next they had to handle an upcycling project which was fun as always but the last challenge was the one that was most fun to watch. It was a vintage inspired Sheer fabric blouse or shirt.

The styles chosen were once again an odd mix but I will have a go at listing them & doing pictures very soon
