Vintage Sewing

Simplicity 6664

January 26, 2010

I’ve finished my first piece for my June, June, & Junie Project(TM) for Miss Friday. I used chocolate brown lightweight twill with a slight stretch (I apologize for the wrinkles!) and made the facings and peek-a-boo box pleats from Michael Miller’s Bubble Blast in chocolate. All fabric was from my stash.

I added small orange flower buttons down the back instead of a zipper. Zippers can be the bane of my existence and I was in no mood to wrestle with one.

I used Simplicity 6664 and made View 3. In all my years of sewing, this is my first time using a vintage pattern. It’s in immaculate condition and was so easy to work with. I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to ‘go vintage.’

  1. Adorable! And such a great choice of fabrics. Using vintage patterns is fun and there are so many great, uncut and perfect ones available on the Etsy market (for less than the cost of a new pattern) they are all I use now!
