This is my latest vintage pattern acquisition.
I bought it because I was very interested in the high-waisted red version. (I do like a high-waisted skirt.) The picture on ebay wasn't so great, so I couldn't really get a good sense of how it looked. I was really happy when I got this because I think it is a lovely skirt. I was made even more happy when I looked at the pattern back and saw how this skirt is put together.
The skirt fastens in the front, with a bib part that goes around to the back. I love this kind of stuff. The more I get into sewing, the more I love little details like this. I am really interested in how things are put together, and I love it when I find something a little unexpected. (I also like what looks like two little kick pleats in the back.) What kind of details are you guys into? I have only recently found myself totally into vintage garment construction and would love to know what gets you guys excited about a pattern.
And for those who like this kind of thing, the full pattern back. (Click on image to make bigger.)
