I adore Jess from Craftiness is Not Optional (the first time we worked together was oh so looooong ago when we both reached 1000 Google Followers- haha!). I also love the blog Skirt As Top and its lovely author, Kristin. So the Vintage May series that these two amazing ladies co-hostess is, of course, just fabulous!
And I am thrilled to be participating!
I used a vintage Simplicity pattern to whip up this little dress for Piper Jane.
We’re calling it the Pinwheel Dress because of the fabulous pinwheel fabric (from the Children at Play line by Sarah Jane).
I should say- this was my first time sewing from a vintage pattern (I know, right?). I love the dress, love the pattern, really love the level of ‘finish’ that the pattern provides… but whoa- vintage patterns assume much more sewing knowledge than the PDF patterns that I’ve grown accustomed to!
That said, I am hooked- I already ordered another vintage pattern (on etsy) to try out this summer, in fact!
Thanks for giving me the jump start necessary to try something new (ok, old), Jess and Kristin! And Happy Vintage May, friends!
