Cynthia Rowley makes the cutest patterns for Simplicity! Pattern 8058 kind of has a 1970’s throwback feel to it. Maybe it’s the flared trousers (which I want to make as well).

So I have a slight obsession over Butterick’s Patterns by Gertie B5895. I’ve made DIY Vintage Jeans and Me Made 2016 Pledge!, and Butterick B5895 Two Ways. All three of those creations were the pants or variations of the pants. Not that I don’t like the top. I like the design of the top. But… Continue reading Butterick 5985, Vintage Playsuit
