|Wait a minute...|
I'd say it's a Polish house dress, with that bold red and white design. This one is made from 2 old tablecloths, plus a bit of old handmade kitchen curtain for the pocket facing when I ran out of the former.
|Biiiggg pockets wide open|
See that checked pattern inside the pocket? That's the bit of curtain fabric.
|and shut closed|
|I can do it.|
This tablecloth dress had major refinements going on. I had to piece it like crazy since I only had 2 to work with and there were plenty of stains and tiny holes too. Instead of embroidering and/or mending, I did applique by cutting out the flower elements from the bits of scraps and machine zigzagging them on the offending areas. Sometimes the dress is more appliqued than not! I have pictures of just the dress and close ups of the appliques on my Clothes for Spring page.
Oh, oh, let's not forget the latest ebay shoes...
|by Antelope, never heard of them before|
|cool in a weird way, huh?|
And now here's that rain coat I made last month and never got around to photographing.
I know it's not the greatest 'outfit' to be wearing to show it off, but hey, I'm getting it done, okay.
|and it has a hood - I luv hoods on coats|
|and big pockets, of course|
|Yeah, check out that lining!|
|and a semi-back shot.|
Close-ups of the rain coat and pattern adapted can be viewed at the Clothes for Spring page.
Phew, what an exhausting post. I think I need a lay-down now. But first I'm linking up with Bella's Secondhand First which is highlighting the famous Vix of Vintage Vixen. Later I'll join the Visibles at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. Do stop by for the party.
I simply must join Sacramento's Share-in-Style: Red today, mustn't I? And of course, Sheila's Shoe Shine party is not to be missed. Gather 'round, now.
