I’m not going to give my review untill after the book club meeting ( which I have to miss, due to being out of town ) .
However, The Widow by Fiona Barton is a “who done it” which involves the kidnapping of a little girl. I decieded to give a nod to the Twee, fashion style.
Little girlish, innocent vibes, slight vintage feel. Bows ribbons, little cats…you get the drift. I had bought the blue material to make the dress. I used the same pattern ,
but altered the neck line, made bigger pleats and added some detail in burgundy to go with the burgundy/brown “baby Jane ” shoes…which are very comfortable and sturdy feeling.
I added more pleats around the sleeves.
I spent a lot of time on a Peter Pan collar which I made detachable.
Then I found a pearl peter son collar you can attach, but in the end, I went for just the piping and vintage buttons. I was also going to wear colourful tights, in green, but I liked the blue pants hose better.
I do like the dress, and will likely wear it often this summer.
I have decided this will be the last of my book themed sewing projects. I have a new idea I’ll fill you in on later.
Happy Mothers Day tomorrow
