Vintage Pattern - 1986

Simplicity 7603 is the next pattern I grabbed out of my stash for Stephanie's wardrobe.
I had some fabric left over from a wool grey pinstriped dress I made last year for Kathryn.

This  needed to be fitted quickly because Steph was leaving in a day or two and I wanted to make vest as well.
So I pinned it together and then sewed it after she had left to go back to Utah and her life as a teacher and student instead of a daughter in our household.
 This is the 8 gore completed skirt from the front.....
and from the back. The three back pleats with a little belt connecting them really make the back. The self fabric buttons on the belt sides also adds character.
Hope it fits and she likes it.
I love the fabric and it should go with a hundred things.


  1. Way cute. Love the detail in the back!

  2. That is so cute.

    I have to admit that if I wore a skirt like that, the piece of material in the back would catch on something, and I'd fall over like a ton of bricks.

    Seriously, that is the kind of thing that always happens to me.


  3. i loooove this fabric. a definite favorite.
