Vintage May!

Today, I get to share with you my take on Vintage May, an awesome series curated by Jess of Craftiness is not Optional and Kristin of Skirt as Top.
I was SO EXCITED to be asked to be a part of this series!

I have a humble, yet beloved vintage pattern collection... I started collecting them when Em was just a baby.  The 40's and the 70's are my favorite eras... Random, right? :)  Here are some of my favorites:
For this occasion, I was going to make a yellow gingham romper from another vintage pattern I have, but when I went Google searching for inspiration pics, the first thing that popped up was a certain gingham romper made for Vintage May by Jess herself.  Lol. Ooops.
So I changed things up, and settled on this pattern:
Which I've also actually made before, right here!

This time, for the shorts I used the Clover pattern from Willow & Co.  They are sooooo adorable!  These short were a snap to make, and I truly enjoyed the entire process.  Also enjoyable - sewing with this clay-hued stretch twill from Mood.  I actually bought this fabric to make a Moss Skirt for myself.  I'm hopeful I have enough left. :)

The super sweet white floral used for the halter top is a rayon challis from Denver Fabrics.  Hello my name is Sarah, and I am addicted to rayon challis.  And florals.  Nice to meet you.
Em's shoes are vintage suede Sperry's from this little Etsy shop.  So sweet.

I love how this outfit turned out!  It doesn't necessarily scream vintage, but there is a classic vibe to it.  I love it.  :)

Thank you so much Kristin and Jess for having me as part of Vintage May!  It really was a blast to poke through my vintage patterns again.
Have a great weekend, everyone!

  1. Absolutely adorable!!! The colors are so lovely!

  2. Hello,

    I love it! I bought a vintage pattern from McCall's to make a cute girl jacket. But I struggle to understand the pattern. I found the annotations confusing. I suppose I just have to try! I wish I could get a garment as beautiful as yours!

  3. So cute! You did a great job!
