Time to recyle and reinvent

Align Center
Found a shirt dress in my "stash from the past" yesterday, and looks like a perfect fit! Lovely blue and appears about 50s print. Has a giant gash (well, a large hole really) in the front of it. At least at the bottom and have ideas to bring back to life. Perfect to wear and will be so comfortable. Now, to get the brain gears moving! Found a blue fabric in the stash that may work. Thinking of inserting a gussetwith possible some simple binding.
Any other ideas of the age of the print let me know! Dress doesn't look like much laying on the floor, but when put on is quite simple and just my style!

Another while and flowing silky white dress will be quite easy to repair, as looks like just some fraying of the color so can bring it back to life also!


Off to the sewing room!
Happy stitchery!

The print on the dress looks like 30's feed sack print.

Thank you Cheryl! That would make sense and about the right time frame. So nice to do something with it.
