A ModCloth Dress and it’s Vintage Pattern Sister

in 1970s

So I was browsing ModCloth the other day with my (a-hem) 13-year-old daughter and I came across the Twirl Next Door Dress.

Well, that looks familiar. I KNOW I have seen those keyholes on a vintage pattern. So I searched my Etsy page which took a while because I had all decades of patterns in one section of my shop (which resulted in hours of rearranging my shop, now much easier to browse!) Eventually I went through the sold items and was able to find it! Totally worth all that effort.

Check out my blog to see the early 70s pattern!

I started sewing in 2005 when my husband borrowed his mother's sewing machine for me and told me that I could make corsets for myself (instead of paying $500 a pop for them.) It was the first thing I ever made. and the first thing I ever sold! The rest is history I'm a Fashion Designer/Antique Dealer just south of Atlanta!

Great looking pattern! Um, is that melanoma as the wallpaper on your site?

Ha! I hope not! It’s a generic blogger wallpaper. But now that’s all I see! I’m going to change that now!
