70's vintage inspired Simplicity

 The colors, the styles, the prints...so 70's! I found these fabrics at Joann's and had a good time making some bold vintage looks I can wear now (and one for this summer).

The dress is a vintage Simplicity pattern that has recently been reprinted as Simplicity 8013. You ONLY need 6 yards of the fashion fabric and a few more yards to line it with.

The plaid skirt is super simple to make from Simplicity 2184, but a bit nerve-wracking to cut and have the plaid look good on the bias.

I picked up Simplicity 1100 ( a reprint of a Super Jiffy Simplicity pattern) and saw this great fabric - all of these fabrics came from Hancock's, by the way. They have had some good stuff lately. It's a swimsuit cover-up that just wraps and ties. Can't you picture it on a California beach next summer (or by the pool here in North Carolina)?
