This is a pattern from a German magazine I picked up whilst in Italy last month.

I tried to make it into something with a 1960s / Mod flavour.
Ignore the hem, the picture is really wonky and it looks a lot better in real life.


If I was contributing to The Sew Weekly on a regular basis this would be my entry for The Diamond Jubilee week, since it's Mod-inspired (one of my favourite things about the UK) and very much red, white and blue.


Somewhere in the world there is also a picture of my Grandma B. wearing a blue pinny with red trim, so this would also be my entry for the Family-inspired challenge.

This dress is also a tribute to my beloved Paul Weller. Because I can't ever get enough of his music.
