Dress in a jiffy vintage pattern Simplicity
My 92 year old grandma has been cleaning out her closets. I totally scored! She gave me her collection of vintage patterns. She’s sewn up each and every one of them. I would love to have the clothing but it’s long gone. The patterns are a time trip from the 40s thru 70s. I whipped this dress up in a jiffy, just like it says on the pattern! Simplicity 7617 was good to me. Of course, I took it in til it fit me perfectly. If I had a rainbow of these dresses, I’d wear one everyday!
I made this dress using a vintage Simplicity jiffy pattern 7617. The fabric is a cotton with a bit of poly that has a stretch linen look. I picked up a whole roll of this fabric from a fave place downtown Los Angeles. I believe everyone should own a sewing machine. If you do, dust it off and make something! AND if you do, send me a pic! Happy day! kimi.
