1969 Skirt


I made this skirt for the Pattern Review Vintage sewing contest.  I used Simplicity 8418 from 1969.  The materials are a stretch denim and a cotton double gauze.  I also used a vintage metal zipper.  I styled the skirt with a charmeuse top I made from a tween pattern from the 1980’s and I’m wearing vintage shoes too:)

  • Eeep! I love the pockets!

  • what a fun skirt! I especially like the fabric that you used on the pockets.

  • Wow, yours is MUCH cuter than the pattern envelope – how often does that happen? I really love the contrast stitching/piping/whatever that is!

    Oh, and I’m old enough to remember that style of top – I really loved them. Cute and comfortable. Hmmm, wonder if I’m too old for one now?

  • Holy Smokes! How have I never run across your site before. So fun!

    The pockets on this skirt—AWESOME!!!

  • I am SO in love with this! The pockets are amazing – and the decorative topstitching is gorgeous!

  • Those are just the types of patterns I pass up for being too bland, or no redeeming features, you’ve proven me entirely wrong with this project, add imagination into the mix and what a gorgeous end project you get!
