DIY Vintage wiggle dress – to sew

Yes, I’m a closet geek – seamstress. Hey, when you love vintage, and are always looking for great value for your money, and you find a stash of vintage patterns? It’s kind of wonderful.

You can see what I mean. I’ve used Simplicity patterns, they generally have good clear instructions, and this dress would not be fussy to make. (Okay, not *super* fussy.) And yet! Think how you could rock this garment. Day, night, dressed down and simple for work, and when it’s time to party? Yowza!

I found this yummy pattern at Fripperie, a vintage pattern and sewing supplies boutique at Etsy. Suzanne, the owner, has some fabulous finds there – she organizes her patterns by decade. You will love the hunt!

Go see. You’ll find wonderful vintage patterns. You’ll create special and unique garments. You’ll thank me 🙂
