Smplicity Skirt 1952

October 19, 2013

Hello vintage lovers,

This is my first post here on We Sew Retro. I have been a big fan of this blog for a while now, and have just finally gotten the motivation to start posting some of the items I have made.

I have wanted a super simplistic 1950’s style skirt for fall for a while now. I knew exactly what pattern I wanted to use, which was this Simplicity 4083 from 1952.

I found 3 yards of an amazing lime green heavy weight linen at an estate sale, I knew right away that I wanted to use it with this pattern. I decided to make view 3, with the waistband on view 1. The pattern called for 3 and a half yards of fabric, so I shortened the skirt by about 6 inches and was able to make up this skirt with only 3 yards.

This skirt was a breeze to sew up. I will definitely be using this pattern again. I love how the lapped zipper in the back of this skirt turned out.

Overall I am super pleased with this skirt, it is a perfect fit and makes me feel super confident!

    1. Thank you very much. You should take a go at making a long 1950’s skirt, they are perfect for fall and winter!
