Fall for Cotton: a vintage sew-challenge

in 1950s


I decided to join Lucky Lucille and By Gum, By Golly present… Fall For Cotton: a vintage sewing challenge for the cotton lover!

The challenge was pretty simple: You needed to use a vintage pattern and 100% cotton fabric. That suited me wonderful since I love to sew cotton.

I like sewing challenges. I can be pretty apathetic and slow to sew things for myself, so it’s good to get a kick in the rear and a deadline to deal with.

The pattern I used was the Misses’ Dress fra Vogue ( Vouge v2960 ) from 1954

I needed a new dress for work (I work in a comic shop) so I used this Superhero Action Words Adventure facbric.

I’m very happy with the result

I love it! Really cute. I wanted to do this challenge but I knew I had too much on my sewing table already.

Oh wow, the fabric great! I love the combination of the vintage pattern and the modern fabric.

Greetings, Isabella
