Made from Style 1077, a vintage pattern from 1976.

I’ve made this pattern up twice this month (images of the other one coming soon) – it’s quick and easy, comfortable to wear, and also works well for a small baby bump. 😉 (And conveniently because it isn’t ‘maternity wear’, can be worn after pregnancy as well – perfect!)

For this dress, I made the pattern up in view 2 with short sleeves. Rather than making the self-fabric sash belt, I paired it with a red belt I already own (I think a belt in this busy floral would be just a bit too much with this dress. If you could even see it amongst that print). It’s made up in an island style floral print, I think it’s a cotton but it could be a cotton blend, I’m really not sure. This fabric’s been lurking in my stash for years and I don’t even know where it came from.

There are more details over on my blog.

Made these pj’s from a vintage 1970s pattern, S6685, size 1 (little kid patterns run large, she wears a 2 in RTW). I used vintage seersucker/plisse my mom had given me this weekend. I had just enough for the pajamas. It went together in a couple of hours, with handsewing the binding and making it from some cotton. I even bound the hem of the pants and opted for no wrist elastic. I cut out red gingham to work on a 2nd pair tonight.

Somehow, I have 3 copies of this pattern, all size 1. I am keeping one, giving one to a sewing friend who has a little girl a year younger than mine and doing a giveaway for the 3rd. Post for a chance on the blog http://www.adventuresbabysewing.blogspot.com, US only.
