Vintage Inspired Copy Kat

Hi! I’m Kathy of The Nerdy Seamstress! When I started my blog, I knew I wanted to have a Copy Kat feature, but I wanted to draft my own pattern. I put it on the back burner to build my sewing foundation because drafting patterns seems like a scary and daunting task. Some how through my wandering the various blogs, I found the Copy Cat Challenge. It was perfect timing because it just gave me the push I needed to start my own feature. I knew this Bettie Page dress would be the perfect first dress to try to replicate.

What drew me to this dress is the back. I’m a sucker for any thing that has detail on the back. I feel that it’s often neglected. I’m proud of how it turned out. Of course, things weren’t successful with the first go. I made a muslin, and had to make minor changes.

I hope you jump over to my blog and check out my Copy Kat! :)
