Another pattern from the past. One skill that came in handy on this dress is using the narrow hemmer foot. I have tried using this foot many times in my many years of sewing and could never get it to work. The trick is to press the first part of the hem and almost push the fabric in to start it. Once you get it, it is the easiest and greatest tool.

I love this fabric. I had made a jacket out of this when I was in my teens, then later (in my 30's) I found the fabric again in a vintage store. So, it sat in my stash for many years until now to be made into another jacket.
