Floral Fourties

The late 40s are my favorite period and I’ve made yet another version of my favorite late 40s pattern-Simplicity 2851!

I made it up in a great vintage floral fabric that I got from a local sewing shop.

This is my first time making this pattern up in a print and it looks fabulous!

This makes the fourth time I’ve sewn up this pattern! And I’m sure I could make four more! Do you have a favorite pattern you love to make again and again?

More photos and construction notes over on the blog.
