Simple and Sweet

This is made from a modern pattern, Simplicity 1873 (one of the Cynthia Rowley patterns). I feel that with the full pleated skirt and short puffed sleeves this has a very 1960’s silhouette. This is a great little pattern for lovers of a retro look. I added 3/4″ to the bodice. I accessorized with a vintage beaded collar I found at an antique store in North Carolina, and the bow is actually a pin I made (yay hot glue gun!) More photos and details can be found  in my blog, Dapper Duds.

  • Very cute! It does have a very retro vibe. What a great way to use vintage accessories as well!
