You can read me like a book

Some months ago Sandra who runs the vintage store Mid Mod Oz passed some old fabric my way. There were 3 semi completed handmade frocks, although they were only 20% done (cut out & pinned), so they required sewing up & finishing off. This one is a lovely heavy cotton in a shift dress style. I left enough room while sewing so it would fit my expanding bump, & I added a ric-rac trim. 
Being cotton it should be wearable all year round. Thank you to Sandra for thinking of me when she came across this stash!

Matchy matchy makes me happy!
