My latest sewing! Though I have a bone to pick with the pattern grader on this one. I've made heaps of Simplicity patterns from the 1940s and I've never had to alter any of them. They're a perfect fit! So of course I didn't make a muslin first (I know! Stupid me.) This one turned out to be too short in the waist. It's also a bit voluminous around the waist, all cunningly disguised by a belt. Would I make it again? I actually love the way it looks on, so yes, definitely - with a proper fitting next time!

My latest set. Three hours at the hairdresser. One night to fall out. I'll be sticking to my home sets in the future!
