Birthday dress...

What?! Two posts in a day? Well, these two are related.
Teegs made a beautiful dress from an original pattern found in the May 1940 issue of Good Taste Magazine and it became her 'birthday dress'. It's gorgeous!

(Teegs edit: You can't really tell, but the best bit is the fabric is a Skull'n'Crossbones print!! Being the pirate girl I am, I totally LOVE it!!)

I love it that your 1940s style dress has a skull and crossbones pattern. That really appeals to my sense of humour. Happy Birthday too!

Naww! Thanks for the kudos you guys!
You sure know how to make a gal feel special on her b'day! :D

Maz, I found the fabric about 18 months ago in the reject bin at Spotlight, so I'm not sure if it still exists!

And Angus, the seagrass matting is nice & all, but the hole in the wall's gotta be my fav bit... :P
