Vintage Sewing

Simplicity 3457

June 8, 2008

This pattern is from 1951. I love the vintage patterns. I rarely encounter pattern errors. So everything went together smoothly. The pattern even has the directions for a matching fabric covered belt. If I would have had a kit to cover the buckle, I would have made one out of the black and white gingham. I find the vintage kits to make matching belts adult size often. I have never seen one child size. More on my blog

  1. Simply charming! Your model is so very darling!

    Little girls look like such little girls in the vintage fashions. The fashions of today for kiddies can be quite sad sometimes. I’m glad to see that there are some well-dressed sweeties out there… when I have daughters of my own, I’m going to have to look back through the archives here and gather inspiration from some of the lovely wee outfits that have been created.

  2. I’ve come across a lot of those vintage little girl’s dresses lately. They look so cute on the pattern envelope, and even cuter in real life!

    Maybe I’ll come across a little girl to sew for, too.
