I hit the fabric stores and ended up picking a Walmart clearance fabric (1.50/yard) and set to work. . Around the start of summer I found a channel on called. Then I started thinking, why should I have to have anexcuse or a reason to wear something that makes me feel pretty and happy?!? . Because that dress is what started my love and appreciation for vintage styles and vintage sewing patterns. . So, how does one make the transition from skinny jeans and t-shirts to vintageby hitting the thrift store! . There is still a long way to go before I can wear vintage daily, but I feel like Im off to a good start! We had to make at least one alteration to the pattern then wear the finished garment in class to get our grade. . So I went through the costume department patterns (donated from people in the community) and found a pattern I loved from the late 50s/early 60s. . She is a lovely gal who wears amazing 1940s vintage and vintage reproduction clothing daily. BTW Im still kicking myself years later for not writing down the pattern brand and number that I used. And yes, that is Peyton when she was about 7 months old! .
