I've been sticking to my Dottie Angel Challenge ethos and buying second hand items and some vintage patterns have been on my list.
I saw this on Etsy ages ago and decided to buy it in November. It arrived from the US the other day
It's a 1960's Vogue original.
I don't have to buy any fabric. I already have plenty to choose from in my "stash" so I have quite a few options to play around with. I really like the blue version with some navy velvet on the collar as a contrast, but I also have some lovely camel wool in the cupboard and that may be what I lean towards
The back view has some nice detail and I really like the way the pocket is incorporated in a slot in the front...the little hat's not bad either, although I can't see myself wearing that too often
I wouldn't mind the little dog as well...
