My next project will be Simplicity 4298 #5. I used version #2 of this pattern before to make my tan dress with roses (see 60s weekend dress). It was easy to follow and I love the variety that came with this one pattern.
Although I'm still using a floral fabric its quite different than the other fabric I used. I loved the vintage look of the small roses but I don't usually wear such light colors. Most of my clothes are black and while I am trying to get away from that I still like dark colors. This new fabric has a little bit of both. Its a navy blue background with asian inspired flowers of all colors.
Now that I've been buying and creating vintage dresses I've notice many bright colors people wore in past decades compared to today. Even modern colored dresses tend to not be as bright as is decades past. Although I would like to add more colors I can't help but love wearing black sometimes.
