Hello there! I’ve been reading and enjoying posts here since the old website, but just now got around to posting. (I know, I’m not slow though, just busy.)
So, I thought I’d show you the most recent dress I made for myself a couple weeks back. It’s made from Simplicity 4426 (late 50s/early 60s?), and I love it!
Everything for this dress came from my stash, except for the buttons, which my mom picked up for me somewhere (maybe Walmart?). I used a solid buttery yellow for the top and rose print cotton in autumnal tones for skirt. I did this because I didn’t have enough of the roses fabric on hand, but I think it turned out better than it would have if it had been all print.
I do love this style and can see myself making more versions in the future.
Come visit me, here.
Happy Vintage Sewing, y’all!
