Description

I made this shirt using a vintage pattern from the 1970s and some adorable fabric I picked up at Jomar’s for only $1/yard! This was the easiest pattern, I think I made this in about an hour and a half! It has hand sewn cuffs and snaps instead of buttons. I love that it actually looks vintage.

Also, I went on vacation to Montana a couple weeks ago and found this amazing Emmett Kelly ventriloquist dummy at my favorite vintage shop…we’re basically bffs now.

    That is seriously amazing. I love the fabric and the pictures with the ventriloquist doll. It really does look vintage.
