Vintage Sewing

Hail to thee, Miss Mayberry.

September 11, 2008

I find inspiration in the weirdest places. For instance, this dress is inspired by a dress some extra was wearing in an episode of The Andy Griffith Show. A black and white episode, no less.

I used the top half of a vintage shift pattern that I have used and altered about a million times. The skirt is just a big rectangle, gathered at the waist.The fabric is a vintage Waverly print.

You could call this a summery dress, but it has hints of fall oranges and greens in it, so I hope to wear it throughout the cold months with a brown cardigan. Maybe to pop down to the diner to meet Thelma Lou and the gang.
