Billie Jean & Polkadots

14May 2013 2

Have you seen the absolutely gorgeous polkadot version of Billie Jean by the lovely Jen, from jenniferlaurenvintage ????

 I fell absolutely in love with i saw Jen's finished Billie Jean. The vintage style of the dress, is a match made in heaven with polkadot fabric, the girl's got style!
 I kindly asked Jen, if she would be interested in being a pattern tester for the Billie Jean, when the pattern was still very much in its infancy  and thankfully she said yes!

 Read about how she made Billie Jean her own, with some simple modifications to the pattern.  I was truly excited to see her finished Billie Jean, and i love the shorter skirt length for more of a modern look.

Check it out Jen' blog, jenniferlaurenvintage and totally be inspired  all over again with her sewing skills and finished projects, she is so amazingly talented.

Remember the pre sale for Billie Jean has been extended until the 19th May!
