Remember this dress?
When I tried this dress on for the first time, it made me realize I really wanted some more volume on the bottom. So this week’s project is not as glamorous as some of the others, but it was new to me and I thought it was a practical make to have around if you have vintage dresses or plan to make vintage dresses. It’s a vintage slip!
I did view A and I took 2 1/2″ off of the bottom so that it wouldn’t show under the vintage dress I made.
The pattern was easy. I think if I were ever to try it again I’d use my gathering foot. I wasn’t super picky about the gathering since it’s an undergarment but if I were to do it again I’d like to use the foot and see if I like the result better. I reclaimed a zipper from a skirt I tore apart so there is a bit of up cycle in this.
This make will likely see a lot of use since I have a vintage pattern buying obsession. My stash of patterns has a decent size sections of vintage and I’m always willing to add to it.
What’s your favorite vintage pattern?
