December 16, 2015Retro Pattern Review–Simplicity 8672
It’s been awhile since I’ve had a Retro Pattern Review to share, so I am excited to bring this one to you this week! We’re taking a look at Simplicity 8672 from 1969.
What do you do when you’ve got a super girly, Star Wars loving daughter, who wants a Star Wars dress? Well, you make her one, of course! Fortunately, Star Wars fabric is pretty readily available right now, with the new movie coming out. However, I was super pleased to find some fabric that featured the characters from the original trilogy. My fabric may not be quite mid-century, but it’s close!
I was exceptionally pleased with how this pattern came out. Was super easy to sew, the fit was fantastic, and everything went together very smoothly. Could the Peter Pan collar be any cuter?
Ella is super pleased with her new dress, and can’t wait to wear it to go see the new movie. The trick may be getting her to take it off to wash between now and then!
