Vintage Pattern Sewing

I picked up this 1977 Raggedy Ann pattern at a local thrift store! and I was so so excited since It looks perfect for fall with the long sleeve jumper dress and school girl apron over top that I had to buy it and make it! (confession - I actually bought this pattern years before I had my daughter because I loved it that much and "if I ever get a girl" I knew I wanted to make it!)

Here is the outfit! Made out od corduroy (also thrifted - $2.00!). I love the look and feel of corduroy in the fall time and I LOVED the color of it, a nice deep red looks perfect against the fall leaves (in my opinion). For an added bit of fun I also did a little embroidery on the apron, and am very pleased with it! A perfect fall mushroom and birds just completes the outfit without drawing all the attention to itself.

The apron has 4 pocket spaces along the front. In the next two pictures you can see the embroidery much easier.

It is my first embroidery attempt - so it's not perfect, but I still love it.

As you can see it's still a touch to big on my girl, so I think it'll be a thanksgiving outfit. 


And that is my fall outfit for my girl! Total cost $3.25 ($2 for the corduroy, $1 for the off white natural fabric, and $.25 for the pattern)

What do you think? Have you found any great thrift finds that are vintage but still cute?

That is so cute. I had a jumper dress like that when I was little. My grandma made me and my doll a matching dress like that. We had our Christmas picture that year taken in them. Such a cute design and brings back a lot of great memories.
