I scored this original 50s fabric for $10. there wasn’t much of it but i managed to squeeze a Simplicity 1950s retro reproduction pattern out of it (No 3673). there’s no matching up of pattern here, as i didn’t have enough fabric to be fussy. i love the final outcome… possibly my favourite out everything I’ve sewn in the year and a 1/2 since i started sewing
