Yellow Roses Vintage

Another pattern mash up – I used Simplicity 1873 for the bodice, a gathered skirt pattern from Vogue 8723 and a sleeve pattern from ‘I cant remember’! I made the matching fabric belt with a belt kit from Sunni at

I sewed it up in a vintage reproduction cotton.

    Looks just lovely. I checked out the pattern as I’m trying to find a pattern with a boat neck fitted bodice and pleated skirt. I’m curious why you didn’t use the skirt of the Simplicity pattern?

      Hi Sophie – from memory I opted to use a gathered skirt instead of the Simplicity skirt because it was a pleated skirt and I wanted a more vintage feel to the dress aesthetic. I redrafted the bodice top a little to make it boat neck too – was easy to do. :)

    You look like a heroine from some old and kind romantic film! Very womanish image.

    I like the way the neckline drapes, not too wide or deep. And the belt to cinch the waist is classic

    I thought you had done an early completion of the Monthly Stitch September Vintage challenge. LOL
