Vintage Sewing

My first project!

August 14, 2007

Since I am also trying to keep a pledge to Wardrobe Refashion (even though I haven’t heard from them yet), I decided to work from my stash to create this Butterick 6655 pattern for my 8-year-old daughter. The polka dot fabric was supposed to be valances, but I didn’t end up needing it. I bought this pattern AGES ago, and was disappointed to discover that I only had the directions and the skirt piece. So, when I pulled it out, I had to create the missing pieces from newspaper. Here are some pics!

You can see a couple more pics at my blog—nakedinfluence.wordpress.com

  1. I love that you repurposed the fabric but I REALLY love that you took the adult style and resized it for your daughter!
