Vintage Sewing


August 24, 2007
Hi everyone. Thanks for the invite. I am almost done with a vest for my daughter.

A vest pattern
This was a pattern from my mother’s stash. It was an outfit I wore when I was a little girl. This pattern consists of the vest, skirt AND the shirt. Talk about complete. I am only doing the vest right now because she needed one for an outfit she already has. However, I think next Spring I will make the skirt and vest together. This was one of my favorite outfits as a kid.

UPDATE: Flawed but done.
This material was hard to work with. I think it also came out too boxy. I’ll do better next time.

  1. I had several versions of this same outfit as well. I think it was my mom’s favourite pattern. One was light blue pinwhale corduroy, the other navy blue polyester (it was the 70’s). So Cute.
