Come Fly With Me Memory Dress

I saw this fabric (bottom one) on an American fabric swap site and fell in love with it. I believe its called Wingman. It reminded me of my Father who love to make model airplanes as a child. I liked the fact that the airplanes were ‘real’

Finding a pattern to make my ‘memory dress’ was easy as I already had Simplicity 1080 By Dottie Angel and as it had a retro/ granny chic style, that I felt it would work well with the fabric.

I will post further photos of it as this one doesn’t do it justice. I wear it with a red jacket and  red shoes and get comments about how unique it is all the time. Still not sure about the pocket fabric, but it is certainly distinctive.

I love it, but it did come up way too big because I forgot to check the ease allowance, but I now have plans to make another one in fabric with Cotton Reels on to remind me of my Mother who was a dress designer and that one will have a better fit.
