So, when I found this vintage pattern in my friend's stash (http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Simplicity_6162), I knew it had to happen. In particular, that delicious smock top pinafore. And what's more appropriate for a pinafore, than an Alice outfit (because a girl can never have too many)?


The dress I made by altering a favourite blouse pattern to mimic the effect of the 70s dress since I already had to draft up to size the pinafore from the vintage pattern, and it was easier to approach from the direction. I actually made the dress out of free fabric my friends got for me at a thrift store discard pile, an ugly cotton seersucker, and then dyed it blue (first trial with Tulip fabric dye. It seemed to work alright.)


And low and behold, whilst perusing my closet, I can also rock this straight 70s style...

It' s fabulous! Very nice color.  And the pinafore worn alone is very cute and flirty.
