I picked up a vintage dress pattern ages ago, & my lovely Mum had a trial run on some fabric she had in her stash, to see if I like the style & fit of the dress before we attempt it in some fabric of mine. It's a two piece pattern, & the trickiest part for Mum was the square neckline. The trial frock turned out really well, & I'm chomping at the bit to get the next one underway. I'm just not sure my sewing skills are up to the task yet!
