Simplicity 8107

Hello!

It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted here, but I haven’t stopped my vintage sewing! I’ve recently started really trying to post my sewing efforts on my blog and get back into blogging!

I just got around to posting about a dress I made this past December so I thought I would share it here too! It’s made from Simplicity 8107. I made it for a christmas party where we had to dress up, so I decided to be a christmas tree. I used green corduroy and a little bit of gold trim at the top, that way if I wanted to wear it without it looking too christmassy I could easily take off the gold trim and just have a plain green dress.

 

What I also really liked about this pattern was that it lined the entire dress.  I also changed the neckline to a V neckline because it was more flattering on me. This was really easy, I just cut right now and folded over the edges.

 

With the dress I made  a headband meant to be the star at the top of the tree

It got lost at my friends house so this is the best picture I have of it. I made it from some christmas supplies I found. The gold curly things were made of wire so I was able to easily twist them to get everything to stay in place on the headband.

The dress went together very easily and quickly and it was a great fit! I’d definitely make this again possibly in a lighter fabric for summer!

Lovely adaptation – enjoyed seeing the headband, too, on your blog!
That’s a gorgeous 1860 project you’re working on, too. Not my era, but appreciate the fabric & your skill!
