There are many things I love to sew and dresses for girls are still at the top of that list.
And my favorite patterns….well…vintage patterns will always have my heart.
So yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed myself as I sewed up this vintage 1971 Simplicity pattern.
For this pattern I used a light weight stretch denim paired with some white quilting cotton for the collar.
The notes that the previous owner of the pattern had written said that this collar wasn’t her favorite because it didn’t lay flat. (I love it when I find notes written on the patterns.) And…after sewing up this pattern I might have to agree. Although I think with just a few changes it would become a favorite!
I love the scallops!
Actually I’ve made a collar similar to this one from another vintage pattern. In fact, I even used the same fabric!!! (You can find it here in the post: Tips for Sewing Smooth Curves and Crisp Corners.)
I love white on white fabric almost as much as I do vintage patterns and crazy collars….
