Market vintage

Woo hoo, I love a vintage fabric find! I bought this piece today at Surry Hills Markets. It's polished cotton, just over 5 metres of it. Like a lot of vintage dress fabrics it's only 90cm wide, so I might need most of that yardage for a frock.

It shall stew in the stash until I think of the perfect frock for it to become. Any suggestions?

I had enough of the stretch cotton left over from the gubbermint frock (see yesterday's post) to make a very comfy A line skirt. I wore her Christmas shopping today, she is very festive.
