Today we get to participate in No Big Dill’s Sew all 26 letters series, and it has been so fun to see what everyone has been making. She has a couple of guest posters a week and then she is sewing all 26 letters of the alphabet. Did you see her P is for Paper Dress?…..wowza. It is gorgeous and really is made out of real paper. Katy really is a master of the sewing universe….
This week she is on V and what is better for V than
VIOLET AND VINTAGE PATTERNS…..
I started with this beauty of a vintage pattern and made the dress version of the cute girlie in the upper right-hand corner.
And here is what it looks like in violet.
I really do love the way it turned out.
I still love those awesome over-sized peter pan collars. They are totally terrific in my humble opinion.
And the invisible zipper in the back. It called for a regular zipper, but I just love invisible zippers so much more so I changed it up. The only other thing I did was add 2.5 inches of length onto the pattern, which I thought was going to be plenty….but it is still pretty shorty-mc-shorten. I think I should have done 4 inches!
And one more final shot.
Have you sewn with any vintage patterns lately?
