Fist Pump Tuesday! #vintagepledge

Last January I made a pledge to sew up my first ever vintage garment this year… And *fist pump in the air* I did it! Given my total lack of sewing skills and inability to follow directions, I opted for this Butterick #4731 because it said EASY in capitals on the pattern envelope. No really, it has nothing to do with the fact that the dress is so cute it hurt my eyes!

I made View B Dress and it wasn’t that difficult; apart from Step 3 which had me in a bit of a muddle. Don’t look at the bias binding on the arm holes, it’s uglier than a Bazilian Treehopper. There are also some, ahem, fitting issues but I’m hoping she’ll grow into it by Winter.

So, would I sew vintage again? Uh huh!! Vintage rocks my friends!! I hope the next time you see me, I’ll be wearing one of these…
