This is the pattern I used (I actually just typed sued-can I sue a pattern for making me look old? I'll have to Google that) Advance 5780.
I was able to use the vintage zipper and buttons on this dress. I love it when I have appropriate notions.
First of all, the name of the print I used is Aunt Grace Ties One On. HA! I love it. Now, I should have matched the pattern, but I did not, live and learn. The sleeves on this dress were a little tricky. I actually ended up using fusible hem tape to finish them. I'm not sure how well that will hold up in the wash, but it did make a nice crisp hem. Also this pattern is pre-printing, so there was nothing on the pattern pieces to indicate...well...anything. But overall it went together fairly easily and I would make it again. Maybe a little shorter. Sorry for not showing the entire dress, I just don't get the whole selfie picture thing. How do they do that? Also vintage pattern makers? Yeah, I'm talking to you...why were the illustrations drawn with waists approximately the same size as their necks?
Oh and here's a close up of my vintage brooch. I had to replicate some of the petals with polymer clay and close up you can tell which ones, but from a polite distance it's hard to see.
Now on to Dress Number FIVE!!!!
