Description

My first vintage pattern attempt – 1968 (late 60’s is my favorite time in fashion history) and some potentially tricky seams at the bust area. Fortunately all turned out OK. Read more about this on my blog

    I love this – so mod! you did a good job with the seams. their always tricky when they go over the chest. you don’t want to look like your wearing a vintage cone bra!

      Thanks Sala22 – fortunately the instructions made it easier than I thought – lots of pins were involved!
