If you don't like this...

then I don't think we can be friends. Sorry.

I don't know what frock this is going to be, but I know for sure what will be trimming it.

But wait, there's more!

I accidentally bought more patterns on ebay. Whoops, how did that happen?

Rickrack Attaaaaack

This is from another one of those Mail Order Patterns (so far, so good; somewhat unfamiliar methods on bits of them, but they work, mate!).

This is out of the jumbo Italian pink linen gingham and green rickrack from the Remnant Warehouse in Marrackville - from the Sydney jaunt - and the pattern from ebay as posted some weeks ago (see top pattern).

This is a true housedress pattern - no zips or fastenings apart from a couple of self-ties to cinch the back waist in. There are three pieces for the front (one bodice cut on the fold and two skirt pieces) and two for the back (right and left sides).

Oh, and let's not forget the pockets. Placed at juuuust the right height for hand insertion, hoorah!

In hindsight, Kitty and I realised that yes, there WAS a use for that giant rickrack at Remnant Warehouse... maybe next time I'm in Sydney!
