Special occasions call for special outfits, and what’s better than a DIY dress?! 🙂 My birthday is the perfect excuse to try a vintage pattern for a pinafore dress from the 1940s! I even have the perfect retro fabric, a remnant from my childhood! Join me for the sewing adventure and hear the whole story! 🙂
I was super excited to find this vintage 1940s pattern for a pinafore dress /jumper on Etsy! (You can find the pattern here!)
My fabric came a story! My mom made these tablecloths when I was kid, and we used them at our backyard birthday parties! 🙂 SO many good birthday memories! Since my mom doesn’t need the tablecloths anymore, she asked me if I wanted to use the fabric! Um, yes please! 🙂 This cute cotton seersucker fabric is the PERFECT fabric for my birthday dress (and there’s just enough of it!)
Time to get sewing!
You can watch the whole adventure here! 🙂
I took my pinafore dress and some vintage accessories out for a walk in the park!
Happy last days of May, Everyone! 🙂 And happy birthday to me! he he! Stay crafty!
