A Blue Dress

My sister’s birthday is coming up. The 26 June to be exact. I, perhaps foolishly, offered to make her something as a birthday gift. After looking through my small collection of patterns we settled on this one – Simplicity 6227 c.1965. I’m going to make view 2 (the silver one, bottom row).

We chose an electric blue linen. In fact, it is almost, but not quite, purple.

This is the most accurate depiction of the colour.

I’ve pre-washed the fabric and taken my sister’s measurements. Now I just need to get cutting and sewing. Wish me luck.
