OWOP Days 6 and 7

For day 6 of this challenge, I wore my all time favourite Pendrell. A black and white one that I have worn so often since I made it last year. I always wear it with my pearls.

Friday, being the last day and casual day at work. I work the Pendrell that I based on Downton Abbey's Lady Mary's garden party dress. I used a cotton with a blue and white stripe. For the front panel I cut the stripes on the horizontal, all other pieces were cut with a vertical stripe. I then used the sleeve ruffle piece (cut on the bias of course) and instead of the other ruffle I inserted a wide piece of lace, tapering in at the edges.

Unfortunately you can't really see the stripes!

I also squared off the front neck line and then cut a facing for the neckline instead of the bias strips.

Unfortunately everyone in the household was gone before 7.30am this morning so i was on my own for the photo op!!


  1. That's great, love what you've done with the stripey one.

  2. Hi Debbie, great to have you on board for MMMay'12! I'm so glad you decided to sign up again.

    All the best
