simplicity 2851

The late 40s are my favorite period and I’ve made yet another version of my favorite late 40s pattern-Simplicity 2851!

I made it up in a great vintage floral fabric that I got from a local sewing shop.

This is my first time making this pattern up in a print and it looks fabulous!

This makes the fourth time I’ve sewn up this pattern! And I’m sure I could make four more! Do you have a favorite pattern you love to make again and again?

I’m not much of a country girl but I couldn’t resist adding a bit of western flare to my blue chambray dress!

I used Simplicity 2851 from 1949. I just love late 40s looks!

I used these cute metal buttons with stars and faux top stitching. And of course, it needed a self fabric belt!
