A Dress For Jenny

Today I finished this lovely little sundress for my sister Jenny:

I used a New Look pattern from the late 40's:

And THIS repro feedsack print cotton from  

I am so happy with the fabric.  It is from Windham Fabrics' "Feedsack V" collection, excellent quality cotton and very reasonably priced at! 

I am also very happy with the finished product, and so is Jennifer.  The dress is just darling!  I love the back kick pleat, the faux button look (it has a side zipper) and the contrasting scallops on the upper bodice.  It's just darling!  

Next I am going to make a dress for my sister Skylar.  She also chose a Feedsack V print (this one), but we are going to use a bohemian-style sundress pattern from the 70's.   Hooray for sundresses!

Any plans to try making that little bolero thing that goes with the dress?

I am so in love with this!! I've been looking for a similar pattern to no avail (I combed through the 54 pages of 'vintage sewing pattern' on ebay, lol). Is there anyway I could buy a copy of it off of you? Please email me at .
