When I was younger, everyone dressed to the hilt to attend church. It really was your Sunday Best - high heels, meticulous make-up, even fresh flowers in your hair!
Everyone dresses very casually now, but to recreate the past, I've decided to put in a bit more effort. Each Sunday, I'll try to wear something I've handmade myself.
Here's yesterday's effort - a little dress I based on a Sixties shift pattern. I did make a toile in calico, before I cut into the silk and added a series of tucks to make the neckline fit better. I always pick up self-cover belt kits from op shops as I've never seen them for sale anywhere else. You sew a bias strip into a tube to cover the buckle and iron on your fabric to the belt for a great retro accessory.
Hmmm, must start thinking about next Sunday...
