Estate Sale Dress

May 3, 2012


This is my first post here on WeSewRetro, so thanks for having me!

I love hunting for old things at thrift stores, antique shops, and yard sales. I recently went to my first estate sale and brought home loads of fabric and other sewing goodies.

Inspired by my lucky haul, I put together this quick dress using some soft, lightweight plaid fabric, a pack of navy bias tape, and 1969 McCall’s 9735, all from the estate sale. As you can see, I added a collar and a little waist tie.


More details over on my blog, Sewin’ Steady. Feel free to pop in and say hi. 🙂


  1. Welcome, and congratulations on a great retro dress! Sounds like a great sale for you, and more lovely photos in future for everyone to enjoy.
