Over the holidays, spent some time with my mother-in-law Amy, a professional grandma who taught me how to make green mango chutney (yum!). This weeks dress looks like something she'd have worn in younger days!
This Vogue/Calvin Klein sewing pattern is nearly 20 years old and cost a mere 20 cents from a thrift shop at the Sunshine Coast.
Can never be sure what you'll find at chain stores like Spotlight, but was pleased to find this cotton/linen granny print fabric was even made in Japan.
This dress is cut on the bias - pattern pieces are laid out diagonally onto the fabric to give the fabric a bit of stretch. Extra stretch means it has no buttons, zips or fastenings making it super quick and easy to whip up. I started at 3pm and was done before dinner!
