Simplicity Retro

Simplicity patterns are in sale at Joann's this week so of corse I had to pick some up while I was there getting MORE material for my practice wedding dress (more about that later).

I picked up the new 1940s pattern they just came out with along with baby patterns. I know the baby ones aren't new but I have a few friends that have buns in the oven or just had a kid-o and I thought I needed the patterns. (notice the word need lol). I really like the woman's pattern I picked up. I don't look very good in dresses from the 1940s but I would like to try to make this one for winter.

Speaking of winter, is anyone else totally wanting to sew for winter? Maybe it's my desire for the 110+ weather to be over but I want to make some coats and heavy dresses.

Anywho- enjoy the pattern pics!


  1. My Joann's does not have the Simplicity 1777 pattern in yet! But it is one of the prettiest 40s reproduction dresses I have seen! I can't wait to see your rendition of it!

    1. Sydnee- My Joann's just got the fall patterns. You may want to call them to see if they have them in now. Today is the last day of the Simplicity sale.
