    Finally finished this! I picked this pattern up in an antique shop in Campbell Town, Tasmania for one dollar...

    And bought this really cool vintage airline logo print fabric from VFG member @silvia-k . I just had to have it... but what to make of it? It does look like a kind of pajama fabric - not that I ever wear or need flannel pajamas... So why not make a kind of housedress? Just something to comfy to hang around at home and wear with leggings. VoilĂ :

    It's not perfect... but hey, it's just for at home... The front opening is slightly off-centre because I misinterpreted the pattern and didn't look at the instructions too closely oopsemoti... typical me! I also went for snaps instead of fabric loops and buttons, and I topstitched the hem :BAGUSE: - not what I usually do with dresses, but I figured this was going to need to be a bit more sturdy when I mooch around on the sofa or whatever :).

    :USETHUMBUP: Job well done. My sis and I wore dresses just like this back in the 70s.

    Thanks... well, when I weart his around home I'm usually not photo-ready :hysterical:. Already working on the next one... a bit more dressy, from my Jiffy shift dress pattern - quick one to make.
