I'm going to try to be a little better at posting my "vintage" sewing here as well as the costumes; at least they're posts, however brief and less-interesting than proper costumes they might be! (I tend to "dress vintage" in everyday life so this type of sewing doesn't seem as interesting to me as, say, an 1860s ballgown might be. Still, it is sewing, and generally takes much less time than costume! So, might as well post about it, right?)
And I put "vintage" in quotes because I wear very little real vintage; that is, clothing actually made in the 40s/50s/etc. I know the community tends to use the term interchangeably, but it bugs my inner pedant ("my dresses aren't actually vintage, I made that one last week!"). Calling them anything else is cumbersome, though, so on to the vintage, with or without quotes!
This one is from a Vintage Vogue pattern, V8789, view A. The fabric is a lightweight linen/cotton blend, printed with flowers and stripes. The ground color tends toward both blue and green, depending on the lighting! The pattern includes a piece for a gathered belt-sash-thing that I forgot I wanted to make (until the day I went to wear it, oops), but I happen to have several sashes on hand, being a costumer and all, so dark brown taffeta worked on this occasion!
(The 7-story Court in which she lives isn't too shabby, either...I always feel like I should be well-dressed while shopping there!)
