We are nearing the end of the year and I’ve totally forgotten to share my third #VintagePledge of 2017, which I made earlier this autumn.
Vintage Simplicity 5890
This pattern is one that I got in a vintage pattern haul way back in September.
I really like the look of the aline version of this dress and just happened to have the same color fabric as shown in the cover illustration.
While the dress was fairly simple I did have to do some resizing which I ended up not doing exactly right.
The dress fits but the front bodice darts don’t line up with front skirt seams, which is so irritating.
The mistakes I made aren’t drastic and most people won’t even notice.
Still, it was enough to discourage me and bury the dress in the back of my closet.
I recently pulled out the dress and despite the mistakes, I found that it was totally wearable and the color is perfect for winter.
