Style Worth Sewing

Someone sent me this and suggested I might already have a similar pattern. I like the stand-up back collar of this red outfit of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. I will be looking at all the etsy pattern people for similar, this next week, and today while I am out, I am looking for fabric.  My clothes have to serve me well in my varied life, so I usually sew a natural woven that washes and wears nicely. I like that the collar might be cut all in one with the jacket, instead of joining separately, which is a sewing time-saver.

I want to thank the blog reader for finding this pattern for me, because this is the one I am going to use.  Using only a picture I posted, without the brand and number, she located where it was sold, so I immediately bought it. So thank you to the ladies who send money, making it possible to make an impulse buy. ☺️The fabric is Waverly cotton, and I've told you before how it feels like silk in the skin.  The style is dated ( hey, I don't want to call it vintage because I remember when it was a new style) but it will suit my ample figure a lot better 😊

Such a smart outfit and I love the length of her skirt and the fullness of it. There must be a pattern out there for this:-)

A bog reader here helped me find a pattern earlier this year and the skirt is so similar. The jacket is different but I am going to use it. The red "country cotton" was on sale for $2.49 a yard so that means the cost is under $15 and since I am not going on any royal tours it won't matter that it's not the same quality. Sewing, for me, isn't just a necessity. It has to be enjoyable, a little exciting and sometimes not really for a need. It has to make me smile, and that suit brightens my mood.

I know many call this vintage, to me this was what I grew up with, and I still LOVE it. Just like home decorating. I love the romanticness( probably not a real word) of it!It's just so pretty.
What I think is really neat is that I have been watching a few "vintage" you tubers who show what they found at the thrift store,etc. These ladies are all in their 20's.They love this style and "puffy" sleeves.
I read comments the other day on one who found a Laura Ashley. Several, actually. She just LOVED it so much!!!
A few other commenters said they found several online and had never heard of her before and they were really eager to buy them.
I am so excited to see a younger generation embracing that look vs. yoga pants!!!
God bless
Can't wait to see your finished product!
