Flea Market Finds

I saw a beautiful dress a few weeks back and had visions of emulating it for myself. But, I lacked a pattern. Maybe it is just me, but I find it really hard to find sewing patterns for myself. There are tons of cool ones for kids, but for adults... not so much.  After doing a google image search, I happened upon this vintage butternick pattern on etsy, and so, with the click of a button, it was mine.  

I have already made one dress from this pattern, and have plans for a second. I will show you the first dress soon I promise, I just need to find someone to take a photo of me in it. I would ask my husband but he is the worst photographer ever. So it may take me a few days to suss something out.


  1. that is super cute! i can't wait to see what you made of it.

  2. That is a gorgeous dress. Can't wait to see it on you. Cx

  3. awwww I am in awe.
    Originally a sewer a dress maker I haven't made my own clothes for years let alone any for my kids
    Can't wait to see

  4. I cant wait to see the dress you make! I am so impressed that you can sew - I am hopeless! Becks x

  5. Not only am I in awe, but I am also transported back to my childhood.
    My Mum had loads of patters like that, and I still remember laying on the floor and being impressed just watching her cut them out!
    A photo is needed - ask one of the children to take one. They usually make better photographers than husbands ;-))


Thank you for stopping by, I always love reading your comments.
