Vintage Two Piece

Hey everyone, this is week I created a Summer Vintage look using two Simplicity Patterns. For the top I used Simplicity 1426 view D and Simplicity Pattern 1559 view D for the skirt.I had to alter the skirt and the top at the side seams by 1 inch to get the perfect.  Also, for the skirt I used an 7 inch invisible zipper instead of a regular zipper at the center back. Those were the only changes I made for this d.i.y, and I’m pretty happy with the results.

Sewing this two piece was very easy and fun and I just love the sunflower print fabric. Summer will be over soon, so I’m sewing my last few projects I had plan for the season.  Make sure your subscribed to stay updated on my latest post, thank you for the support.  Here is my Vintage Two Piece D.I.Y :






Summer Vintage Patterns

Since I’ve been sewing , collecting vintage patterns has become something I love to do. I have found many cool patterns that were made before I was born. The three patterns I’m presenting were made between 1980 and 1999. I haven’t sewn any of these patterns because they are not in my size. Before they’re sewn I will have to grade them down one or two sizes. All of the patterns bellow are made from either The McCall Pattern Company or Simplicity Patterns.These patterns are my favorite styles in my collection, and are perfect for Summer and Spring. Here are a few summer vintage patterns.

Thrift Find

This past weekend I found some really cool vintage patterns. Thrift stores is a great place to buy sewing patterns for close to nothing and the money you spend goes to charity.  I went to the local 3 Way Thrift Store and got two patterns for only 1 dollar.Best deal ever 😄😁, retail price for new patterns can be from 10-20 dollars. Now,let’s get to these wonderful finds so the first pattern is this 1986 Buttrick  3912. 

I’ve been searching for a pattern  like this one for months,I’m overly excited  about finding it and adding it to my pattern collection. This pattern is uncut and still in factory folded form , which mean all sizes are still available to use.   I’ve purchased some  rayon fabric last year for a garment like this and will use it for this pattern. Ill have a post on the finished garment in  the future, here is the fabric.

Next is this McCall 8108, it was made in 1996. 

I love McCall patterns this one  is a simple pullover dress with four views. It is also uncut and in factory folded form. I got really lucky with this purchase,sometimes  when  buying vintage patterns at thrift stores they can be cut and used. I’m really happy with these pattern  conditions. Looking forward to finding more awsome and rare vintage patterns.
