I love sewing with children’s vintage patterns.So many modern patterns for children are sort of sack like and shapeless.

I love how the styles from the forties are fitted and stylish, while being practical at the same time!

This little dress was made from a thrifted men’s shirt and my 1942 Simplicity pattern in the spirit of 40′s frugality.

Blogged here.

I made myself a playsuit! The fabric is vintage madras I bought at the Rose Bowl Flea Market and the pattern is from the early forties. Visit me at Sew Country Chick for more pics and info!


This is a dress I designed for the Burdastyle Vintage Modern Challenge. I was inspired by the migrants from the midwest who populated the ranch area in California where I live. To see more visit my blog

This is my second version of the Crepe pattern. I used a lovely vintage fabric I found on a road trip in Oregon.
