feedsack dress

I really like the prints of old feedsack fabrics and someday hope to start a collection. I have only this one in my stash and I've been holding out for about a year or so. It's been begging to be turned into a dress. It was still stitched up as a feedsack when I purchased it. I wished I had photographed it before so you could have seen the stitching.

I liked the idea of making a sundress- something casual and carefree. I made the seam binding so it would match though the pattern suggests store bought I liked this look much better. The drop waist is cinched using seam binding sewn inside and elastic. I made size 3 and the pattern is this one View D. It should fit Ms. S next summer and perhaps this one too but, I haven't yet tried it on her.
