Added Mar 6, 2012
I’ve recently been inspired by the dresses worn by Cindy Brady. The collars, the colours, the smocks – they’re all just so super cute! So when I saw the vintage Bed Jacket pattern waiting to be modified I knew exactly what to do with it.
I’ve modernised the pattern but still given it that vintage feel that I’ve been loving of late. I lengthened it, extended the sleeves, added a contrasting collar and made it completely reversible! To fasten it, I’m using one of my mum’s vintage brooches.
I was super keen on the navy / red combination so I made the Slip On Jumper Dress to match.
I think Cindy would be proud.
