Economy Design No 233. I'd never heard of this company before. It must have been a mail order company, as the design came in a brown return envelope rather than a normal pattern sheath. All the pieces were there, though sadly no instructions. So I winged it, and made it up as I went along.
Heaven knows if I've done it right. Sewing the yoke on was a leap of faith. So I just matched up the notches and hoped for the best.
Maybe I should top stitch either side of this seam to make it stand out some more.
This was my first attempt at a zip! It's not great but it's in and works. Got to start somewhere. Looking at the photo I'm going to add a hook and eye to the top.
So that's my first go at vintage. and it won't be my last. It was fun. I wore the dress out last week and found it made me walk tall. Which is fabulous when you're 5ft nothing!
