The Plain Pattern Project - Dress 1

Well, as I already said before I am attending "The Plain Pattern Project" challenge with this vintage pattern...

For the first dress I picked up the fabric that has been left in box with the remnants for satin.


Basically....I don't like to wear satin,but the dress does not look too grand in combination with long-sleeved T-shirt and cardigan. hair is a mess...I don't know what to do with it.

Presentation of a coat

I have to show you one of my vintage stockings.
I would say that the stockings are from the 30's.They are made of silk with cotton foot and welt.
Oxford's are from Bata

My Coat

Coat is a garment which I was afraid to sew. I thought that I haven't the right tools for making the perfect coat .... industrial press for example is a tool that you can not replace with anything else. My first attempt a few years ago confirmed this, although I think that the fault was on the choice of fabrics ... wool fabric was soft and rarely woven, and the lining was firmer..padded for extra warmth.
Well, this time I chose better quality fabric with classic polyester lining and it turned out much better. I am satisfied.

Time For a TrenchCoat

Since I did not find in stores lady-length trench coat, that is, below the knee, I have to sew it myself.
I have to say that there was much to do with all those extras that go along with the trench coat, but it was worth it.
