We're always excited when someone emails us the results of creating from Britex Fabrics’ fabrics; this is a dress sewn from gorgeous herringbone Alpaca (made in USA.) Karen of the blog Fifty Dresses: Sewing classic fashions from mid-century patterns, made this elegantly swank frock from the vintage pattern Vogue 9353 (c. 1957.) We love the yoke and sleeve design, and how Karen utilized fabric scraps for her bound buttonholes. She said, “Even though I did not have “plaids” to match, I needed to pay close attention to the rows in the herringbone weave, so that none of them were crooked. This is where Clover two-pronged pins (recommended by Susan Khalje in The Couture Dress class) came in handy and helped me keep those rows lined up evenly.” The vibrant Kelly green leather gloves and scarf provide a chic accent!
