A Wearing History Kind of a Day

I’ve been costuming lately so not much on the vintage sewing front but Saturday I snuck in a quick project.

This pink skirt was just the solution from my new clothes withdrawal. It’s from Wearing History’s Sailor Playsuit pattern but I removed the button placket and opted for a side zipper because I loved the shape but wanted this version to be less nautical feeling. (And I didn’t have enough buttons in my stash.)

The blouse is also a me made Wearing History but from the Smooth Sailing pattern. I think it looks just darling with this pink skirt. For more details, check out my blog post or the Wearing History pattern store.

  • So cute! I loooove those juicy colors (looks just like a watermelon), and the puffed sleeves are quite adorable.

    Thanks for sharing!
