Sabrina's Dress

In my twenties I used to do quite a lot of dressmaking - I don't know why - I wasn't particularly good at it and I didn't particularly like it.  Anyway, a couple of years ago I had another go at dressmaking and made a dress.

The dress is a nice simple pattern and it's easy to wear.

So I've decided to make another one.  With this fabric - very summery.

It's cut out and I've completed the bodice.  Congratulating myself on the progress so far I relaxed with some knitting and the Audrey Hepburn film Sabrina (1954).

A lovely film once you get over 55 years old Humphrey Bogart as one of the romantic leads.

Imagine my surprise when I noticed Audrey was wearing my dress!

Her waist is just a little bit smaller than mine!!!

How wonderful, until you realise that Sabrina's dress is from the period in her life where she is young and unsophisticated.

After her return from Paris, older, wiser and definitely more sophisticated  her dress style changes significantly.

Oh well, I don't think I could ever pull off the sophisticated Parisian look so I'll keep working at the innocent young girl look!!
