I've always been a fan of Audrey Hepburn. I love the movie "Charade" and the clothes she wears in it are fantastic!
I I made a plan in the summer to make a "two piece wiggle dress", for nursing purposes, and couldn't even find an actual photo of one. So I had to figure it out on my own!
(And shhh! I found this fabric at a stuff swap at my church!)
I don't know how to draft a pattern from scratch so I used bits and pieces from a bunch of different patterns:
Jacket: Simplicity 8047
Sleeves: Simplicity 1459
Collar: McCalls M6395
Dress: The Wiggle Dress from Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing
I really improvised for the top of the dress.
Like I wrote before, I wanted this to be a nursing dress. I could've used this last spring but oh well! Better now than never.
I even did a lapped zipper! I was going to make it fully lined with French seams, but I think if I tried that I would never finish it!
Done is better than perfect right?
Do you think Audrey would approve?
