Vintage Sewing

Plaid Schoolgirl Dress

June 14, 2011

Hi Everyone, I’m Nina! On my blog “Mad Girls Prefer Pretty Dresses” I post about my (usually vintage-inspired) sewing projects and occasionally food 🙂

A few weeks ago I finally finished a dress I had wanted from the moment my mom gave me this tin bank:

The girls dress is adorable! So I finally got around to making my own, with a few changes:

I also made functional in-seam pockets, with a ribbon and metal ring (to attach my keys to) and and a little pocket that my iPhone fits into perfectly!

See more pictures and infos on this project here.

  1. Awesome dress, you look sensational! I thought that was a model photo from a magazine at first glance, very cool.

  2. Very cute dress and pictures. I agree with the comment above, the accessories you paired the dress with are great.
