Vintage Sewing

A Little Treasure

September 25, 2010

For those who have been to my blog this is a little out of my usual style element, but when I found this pattern at a garage sale this summer I just had to have it.

I love knit tops, sweats (did I say sweats???) ok “Work out pants”, and dresses. They are so carefree and comfortable I wish I had time to make myself lots of stuff. This is in my to do box, patterns that I really want to make. It is Simplicity 8086 Multi-Wrap dress. Can be worn 15 different ways. My plan is do a shorter version for myself. The long version is pretty but I think I would get more use with it if it was below the knee less formal.

Just because I’m always curious to the history of patterns I looked it up on Vintage Patterns Wiki. I wouldn’t think a 70’s pattern would bring much money but the vendors are asking from $40.00 to $75.00 for this pattern! YIKES. Guess what I paid for min? You got it 10 cents! 🙂  I’m not interested in selling it just sharing it with you all. Hopefully I will be sharing finished project with it.
