Simplicity 4243 Size Medium

My first project in the challenge will be to try and use up 2 meters of this vintage style fabric using Simplicity 4243.

I like the vintage style of this dress and plan to use the pattern for the bloomers, main dress and sleeves and use off white for the contrasting collar and hem band.

I liked the '30's style figures on the fabric and that's why I bought it.

Periwinkle blue is such a lovely colour and works well with the pink, green and bright yellow accents.

I didn't have a particular project in mind when I bought the fabric.

Since the pattern only calls for less than a meter of fabric, I'll be making several items in order to use it all up!
