in 1950s,Vintage Sewing

This is my version of a vintage vogue pattern.



It’s Vogue 8789 which I modified slightly by replacing the skirt with a circle skirt. I also used a few ‘vintage’ techniques such as turned and stitched seams and a hand-picked zip. I have more photos and details of the fabric and construction on my blog barbarajanemade.wordpress.com


Thanks for reading and happy stitching
