If I had to be honest, like completely and totally honest, I would have to say that Viv our little sister has to be one of the coolest, most awesome people I know.Take this dress for example, who else could rock a 1940s inspired dress that’s covered with comics all in a duotone of green and black.

No one. But Viv. Because. She is so awesome!

She actually stumbled on this comic book dress idea from a blog. she loved the look, the style and especially the waist. (How amazing is that “puff” from the waist?) She showed the picture to our mum and before you could say bibbyty bobbity boo Viv had a new dress. Well, it actually took mum a couple more days than just bibbyty bobbity boo, (perhaps if you really drew out your oooooos and ibbbbbbtys it might have worked) but it’s still an amazing achievement nevertheless! 

That’s true collaboration and creativity for you! From the idea, concept, materials and execution! And now we just need to find an event for Viv to wear that dress and paint the town red.

Does anyone have sewing tips of websites that have vintage sewing patterns? It’s a bit of a hobby for our dear mother and she would love to get inspired with more vintage dress patterns!
