I wanted share a dress my sister Viola made me out of Simplicity 3833, a 60′s re-pro pattern. I picked view B with the short sleeves. We’ve also made the sleeveless one which came out really cute too. This dress is simple to make and can be completed rather quickly making it one of our favorite dresses to whip up. I chose a blue floral cotton fabric that was on sale at JoAnn for only two dollars a yard so I couldn’t pass it up!

Hello, this is my first post on the We Sew Retro. My name’s Vera and I LOVE vintage patterns!!! Anyway… to the sewing!!
My sisters and I bought this 1960′s pattern off Etsy (above) and I was the first one to break the ice and use it! I chose view C. It turned out pretty much how I pictured…It didn’t really take that much imagination to envision. Everything in my closet that I’ve made has been fabric with a print-so I opted for a solid color fabric. I was originally thinking a lighter powdery blue, but I couldn’t find any so this was the closest that I got.
The cool thing about this pattern was that it fit me perfectly; usually I have to make some adjustment to vintage patterns but not for this one!
This is one of my favorite dresses now, I love the pockets that I added!
