If you're not familiar with using vintage patterns, ask Xandra, or seek out one of the many bloggers on the web like Rochelle. I had a few questions about the pattern I chose (below right) for the 40's Fling challenge. Xandra was SUPER helpful! We emailed back and forth a couple times, I sketched a few things on a post it, took a photo, emailed it to her. Voila. So awesome. Thank you Xandra! So be not afraid!
Xandra is hosting a 1940's Fling Pattern Challenge. All submissions have to be in by June 1st 2015.
Since this nightie is floor length and I'm not a maxi dress kind of girl, I'm shortening it to mid-calf, taking about 15 inches out. Here we go... raising cane, I mean hemlines! ;)
