WIFD Day 1


At the S&S site, we are having another WIFD (Week In Feminine Dress), suggested by one of our long time members. I was hoping we would be having some lovely spring weather to encourage the participation, but that was only the first day, so far. Winter greeted us this morning. Nothing like a little snow on a May morning to force me into warmer clothes, again.

On Sunday, I wore my brown, embroidered, cotton tiered skirt and peasant blouse. Both were made last year. Olivia is wearing her birthday dress, from last year, that I made from a vintage pattern. The dress is made from a lovely cotton, left over from a dress I made her big sister, and several little girls, years ago. A few more years and that fabric would be considered 'vintage'. :)

I am looking to make that EXACT skirt (at least what I can see of it in the picture) - what pattern did you use? I have a black one I bought YEARS ago and it is just falling apart. I have mended it *numerous* times and I'm just going to HAVE to make myself some new ones. I was thinking about just ripping apart the one I have to make my own pattern (I LOVE this skirt), but perhaps, if you could share what pattern you used, I could use it as well.

Let me know what you think!

p.s. I'm enjoying your WIFD~

Hi Lori,

The pattern I used is an oop Simplicity pattern, but I am sure you can find it around. The number is 4375, here is a link to show you a picture of what the pattern looks like, [url=http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Simplicity-4375-Smart-Casual-Outfits-20-28_W0QQitemZ110384980686QQcmdZViewItemQQimsxZ20090503?IMSfp=TL090503111002r1101]Simplicity 4375[/url]. I hope that's helpful. I have used this pattern so many times, it's a great pattern.
