After participating in the past Fall for Cotton, I couldn’t stop myself from joining in Spring for Cotton. I’ve recently bought some beautiful cotton fabrics from Stoffamstueck and I was planning on making some vintage inspired dresses, so this came just in the right time.
As I’m planning to make a couple more of vintage reproductions for the Vintage Pledge, I decided to sew Gertie’s shirtwaist dress for this challenge. When I saw this cotton poplin I knew it had to become this dress. Unfortunately it’s a lot more saturated in the pictures in Etsy than in real life and the shipping costs were a killer (even inside Europe). Anyway it’s still a lovely fabric and it’s going to be a wonderful dress.
And you? Are you participating in Spring for Cotton?
