I’ve made a vintage copy-cat dress. I’ve been ogling this dress on pinterest for a long time and have finally recreated my own using vintage simplicity 3338 from 1960. The striped fabric is a close match from the original from Mood. To see more come visit my blog : ErikaMadeIt












Are you hooked on pinterest? Do you have a keen eye for a gorgeous vintage pattern?

Drop a link to your pinterest profile in the comments below (or email it to katherine [at] if you’re shy) and I’ll add you as a contributor to our newly created vintage sewing patterns community pinboard so you can share your pattern finds with us.


This idea is the brainchild of the lovely Lynda from Australia, who you can find on etsy here :)


Edited to add:

If you sign up to contribute, I strongly recommend checking your email preferences here: and setting ‘Group Pins’ to OFF. If you leave the ‘Group Pins’ notification on, you’ll get an email notification any time someone posts to the board and that will quickly become extremely annoying.
