I bought this vintage fabric at a flea market in December, and I recently bought Vogue 3013, a vintage pattern. I think the main reason I bought the pattern was because I loved the cover illustration. It’s like clone wars! Also, look at the fabric on view A there, the middle view. Spooky!
So, of course, then I couldn’t imagine this pattern in any other fabric.
I made view D, because a girl can never have too many sunfrocks. More on the blog.
