I love the design details of vintage patterns even if I don’t sew from them very often. Most of the vintage patterns that I buy are mainly for the artwork or in hope to preserve it for the future. Digging my stash to separate my favourites for a feature wall I stumbled on simplicity 7239. A true 60’s pattern featuring front and back seams, extended neckline, raglan sleeves and sleeve head dart. I immediately felt the need to make it with a gorgeous knit (not available anymore). I was hoarding this fabric for a wrap dress. I actually saw a Boden wrap dress with this exact print. Lucky I have enough left to make a copycat dress. Fabric is from the Sweet Mercerie. Great fabrics from France. Good quality for the price and interesting prints. The dress was simple and fun to sew. Jersey dresses tend to last longer on my closet because they wear well most of the year. Nether-less to say how comfortable they are! The pattern is for woven but I already talked about how I make woven to knit swap.
My shoes are actually vintage from the 70’s. I probably own it for 17 years. How i love shoes. They always fit independent how old they are.
