Why: I’ve been on such a sewing kick lately and I really love making 1950s style dresses. I stumbled upon a vintage pattern (in my size!) a couple weeks ago at the antique store and opted to combine it with the skirt from Simplicity 2444. I actually converted the pleats to gathers as well.
Isn’t this fabric kitschy? My hunt for guitar fabric started with this photo of my grandma. Although I couldn’t find the same print (or anything close), I’ll still think of her every time I wear this frock!
