Vintage Simplicity 8085

June 15, 2016

W00 hoo! Finally getting brave enough to post on the main We Sew Retro blog! Been a huge fan of everyone’s projects on this blog for a long time and wanted to share my most recent make.

I’ve been sewing for about 15 years and originally went to school for textile and fabric design. I am obsessed with using colorful prints!

I made this dress a week and a half ago and have all ready worn it a bunch of times- I’m all ready thinking I should make another version in a linen fabric.

I was really apprehensive about only having snap closures… so I added at least 3 more than the amount the pattern dictated!

Also, I put in my bias binding detailing a little bit differently than what the original pattern called for. I talk about that a little bit in the video I made for it.

 More details, additional pictures, and video can be found over on my blog.
