My first Enid ...

I thought it about time I introduced myself. My name is Carol and I live near Byron Bay. I joined this blog some months ago with the intention of showing my Enid Gilchrist handiwork. I made this dress in August and am only just now getting around to posting it.

The dress came from this book, which I bought at an op shop in Mullumbimby for 20c last year. I've also drafted a jacket, a long coat and two dresses from the same book, which I will make in the coming weeks.

I'm so thrilled with this book and I hope to find more. This must have been a godsend to women in the 60's. There is almost every style of garment a girl could want in this book. Thanks for allowing me to join in.
