Vintage Sewing

Out and about…

November 3, 2008
I finished this skirt in time to wear it on Sunday. The pattern is McCall’s 5591. I found the pattern straightforward. The fabric is vintage. It was actually a skirt that was several sizes to large and had a lot of unflattering gathers at the waist. I was able to reuse the fabric by taking the skirt apart. I barely had enough (you may have noticed the waistband). I had to turn the print sideways, which is totally hilarious, but with the shirts I will wear, this unfortunate design detail will hardly show. I plan on making this pattern again.
  1. I’ll second both those comments. Love the fabric, and the sideways waistband is great. Borne out of necessity maybe, but a great touch nevertheless. I’d keep it well on show, not hide it!
