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. :)
