McCalls 6331 Turned Into a Rockabilly Playsuit

July 17, 2016

This was perhaps one of the funnest challenges I have presented myself with. I have been dying to have a vintage playsuit but just do not have the funds to buy a true vintage one, nor a vintage pattern for one! But I did have the funds to buy an older McCalls romper pattern, #6331 that would do the job. A little bit of creativity combined with, what I am calling, a fly-away circle skirt, and I had the pin-up/rockabilly outfit of my dreams to wear to a beach bash dance I was attending.

You can read more about this make over on my blog, Seams Sew Retro!

  1. That’s adorable! I made one last year for Goth Day at the beach. I also altered a dress pattern to work instead of buying a retro pattern. I recently picked up Simplicity 8139 which I am looking forward to making up.

    1. Oooh. I can’t wait to see how your new make will turn out. I’ve been terrible about doing projects this summer. I thought i would have had another version of this made up already but I’ve been so lazy!
