So I scored big at a rummage sale a couple weeks ago and got two huge boxes of old patterns (mostly 20s-50s) for $5.  This is the result of one of those patterns:







I look dorky in it, but it makes me insanely happy Smiley

Also, it fits me the best of any item I've made for myself.  It fits really well, actually.  I'm thrilled with how this turned out.

Of course, criticism and suggestions are welcome!

LOL I read the first sentence (I scored big at a rummage sale) then I looked down at the picture and saw the man and the baby and I thought "Wow, she did score big."

Love the dress. I really like vintage patterns. Though how come I've never gotten so lucky at a rummage sale!?!?

Isn't it awesome to make vintage clothes from an actual vintage pattern, and not a reproduction or vintage style pattern?  It's a great dress and you look good in it, I can tell you are insanely happy  Grin

Wowee!  I've never got 2 pages of replies  Cheesy

Those patterns were definately my best rummage sale find to day.  I should post some pics of just the patterns.  I was concerned that there were going to be a bunch of ugly/lame patterns, but most are very cute.  AND most are in a size 16+, which for the time is practically unheard of.  (This particular dress was a size 20.5, I think...which really doesn't say much for my size, huh  Cheesy?)
