It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, but it hasn’t stopped me from lurking 🙂 I have finally broken down and taken a sewing class with my mother-in-law (we made a pillowcase) as well as signing up for the next class (we get to make aprons!). She and I have also started investing in patterns that we will be sharing. We found some fantastic vintage patterns- one I bought is a fantastic Anne Adams pattern for a sleeveless jacket or shirtdress that still has the mailing envelope, postmarked 6.22.64, costing a whole 2 1/2-cents to mail 🙂
My question is this- this patter is marked a size-13 and is terribly small. I, on the other hand, am about a 16-18 and not-so-small. What would be the best way to resize this to fit? I absolutely love it, even though I’m usually more drawn to the 1940s stylings, and would to have this wear in the spring.
