Vintage Sewing

Simplicity 5131

November 20, 2009

About a month ago, I won some vintage patterns from the generous Lisa of The Hem Line. You all know Lisa, because she announces her vintage pattern giveaways on Sew Retro.

There was no envelope, so from just looking at the style, I would guess it’s a late sixties, early seventies pattern. What do you think?

Anyway, this is the dress that came out of the pattern. I messed up the skirt lining and the hem a little, and I was going to fix it. However, as sweet as the dress is, but I don’t think I’ll be able to pull off the look.

I did a mock roughly pinned the dress up to make it into a top, and this is how it looked:

I think I may have a new top instead of a new dress.
