Dolly Creates

 Hey there! It’s Esther from Dolly Creates. I love vintage-style clothing, of course, so I was browsing for patterns, and I came across the Pearl Harbor Pillbox pattern from Sense and Sensibility patterns. I was SO excited to find a hat pattern that I could crochet! It was really very easy to make, and worked up fast!

Bottom line: I love this pattern a lot. I can’t wait to make one in every color!

I have absolutely fallen. in. love. with vintage fashion. I can’t get enough of it! So, being as I am a bit of a novice sewist, I chose an easier pattern for my first vintage-style dress. It was SO nice to not have any zippers, buttonholes, or interfacing to deal with. I used a vintage-style cotton, and it worked great. It does wrinkle a bit, but not enough to be a problem.

It took a while to complete, since I hand-sewed the seam binding and the hem, but it still was fairly fast. I can’t wait to make another one of these dresses – they look cute with a shirt underneath, or with a cardi on top.
