Win/Russian Blue

Spikklubba of Adventure & Vintage won the giveaway! Just email me the two patterns you want and your mailing address to taponmyback@cox.net.

I've been claiming the existence of this dress since its creation at the end of SSS and now, mid-November, I finally have proof of it. Made from half-size Simplicity 7385, 1976.

I will admit I did struggle with this one a bit, especially on the piping. The fake-wrap Soviet-style piped front was something I did after realizing it looked like my grandma's summer muumuus. Same fabric and everything! I almost quit half-way through, thinking it wouldn't ever look wearable, but I persevered and now it has quite grown on me!


  1. Wow, I never won a givaway before, thats awesome! Thank you :)

    The dress is lovely. The button detail made me think of the early 1940s.

  2. I *think* I had a pink paisley dress made out of this same pattern, back in the day...needless to say, I like your version much better!

  3. Oooh, love the style! Pretty little buttons!
