Vintage fabric, vintage style, design by me!

So... Finally I got my butt out of the computer chair and did some sewing! I have been thinking on sewing, where to start and what to do for I don't know how long now, but my thesis has been priority one...

Anyway, today when I got home I was super inspired. This is what I came up with!

The fabric is vintage, 60's or 70's maybe? I bought it online really cheap, and I think it's half of an old bed sheet! As usual when it comes to me - not really enough fabric. But hey! Who needs another dress when you can make a two piece?! I designed and constructed the pattern myself this evening. I literally used every single inch of the fabric!

Here are the results! (and sorry about the crappy quality mirror-shots, I just couldn't make it look right with the timer on my camera...)


  1. It's absolutely LOVELY! Great job! I am loving the fabric and all the details!!!
