I have been
stalking/pestering waiting patiently for Jessica to post her Vintage Feedsack Dress tutorial and she finally posted it 2 weeks ago so I wasted no time in making my own version.
I do not have any feedsack fabric in my stash so I picked one that screams ‘vintage’ and the fabric is from the ‘Betty Dear’ line by Arlene Zimmerman for Robert Kaufman, so beautiful, isn’t it? The fabric really maketh the dress.
Yay! The bias tape lined up at the back. I decided to run some machine scallop stitches around the collar and the bias tape around the bodice as they add further ‘vintageness’ to the dress. I omitted the buttons in the front so they won’t compete with the white flower centerpiece on the bodice. My favourite part of the dress are the bow ties on the sleeves.
