Vintage Sewing

My 1950’s Reproduction

January 20, 2011

This was made for a twelve year old so my version is pinned to my dress form as it was too small for it. The mom and daughter picked out the cutest fabric! I used two vintage patterns to recreate this dress, only because my Butterick 7680 did not have the skirt in the envelope. Hate it when that happens. I had to do some major modifications to the bodice for one the size of a 12 yr old and two neither pattern looked like the exactly like inspiration photo. I think it all worked out great though. I made my own mid section and trim for the skirt so it match exact.

  1. love this! What would be some great fabric choices (print and material type) to make a vintage dress/skirt like the one above?
