Hi! This is my first post on We Sew Retro and I’m super exited to share with you my latest project
I am quite lucky finding vintage patterns in charity shops for cheap, plus I’ve been blessed with lots of them as gifts once friends and family hear I’m into dressmaking. I now have quite a collection of vintage patterns to work through so hope to share more with you in the future.
This dress I made with a 1965’s pattern (dated by vintage pattern wiki) and made up with a cotton lawn I was given for my birthday back in may.
I usually go for more full skirted dresses, but this has made a nice change and I’m warming to the shift dress style more and more as I wear this.
It’s a simple construction, and was quite quick to put together, ignoring my fitting gaffs. All in all, a successful vintage inspired make!
