Simplicity 5209

in 1960s

Hello! Here is another one of my most recent projects. I made Simplicity’s 5209 from 1964. I used a vintage plaid wool I had in my stash. This was my first time matching plaids, but I feel like I did a pretty good job! You just have to stay focused and keep looking back to make sure it’s right before you cut it.


This is another pattern that I was very happy with the outcome and would definitely remake again.

I styled with dress with a white button up blouse, brown waist belt, and brown flats.
