Vintage Play Set

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

I guess the thought of Warrenton/Round Top Antique Week coming around the corner has me thinking of all things vintage. I found this embroidered pillowcase at Warrenton a couple years ago. This Farmer’s Market print of Sandi Henderson’s mimics the colors and circle pattern perfectly. The floral ruffle on the shorts and bodice lining is another vintage find.


I wanted to do a bit more than the usual pillowcase dress, so I started with the bodice pattern from Patty Young’s Modkid Isabel pattern. Then I cut the pillowcase down, gathered, and stitched it to the bodice. Easy! I’m hoping to make one more change to my pattern for the shorts, and then I’ll share a tutorial. I’m easily distracted though, so let me know if you’re waiting around for a shorts tutorial.




  1. Darling outfit! Love the little shorts. :)

  2. Love it! Especially the ties and the shoulder, and the shorts!

  3. Lucky you! I have always wanted to go to round top! Super cute playsuit!

  4. The shorts are adorable! Can't wait for the tutorial :)

  5. Gorgeous! I love the ruffles on the shorts

  6. awesome job and one happy customer! The top looks light and breezy and the shorts look very comfy.


I love comments! Let me know what's on your mind.
