...Simple Simon & Co.'s Vintage Crafter's Challenge...

This post was originally part of Simple Simon & Co.'s Vintage Crafter's Challenge...to see more of the amazing designers/bloggers & their creations, start here...

Each participant in the challenge was mailed vintage craft items and was asked to create something with any or all of the items...

I'm so excited to show you what I've created with my envelope full o' goods! But first...here is what the girls sent me...



1 fat quarter of lovely blue floral vintage cotton, 2 vintage wood buttons, beautiful charcoal grey lace, chocolate brown bias tape and the most wonderful circular embroidered/cross-stitched small tablecloth...here are some of the amazing details in the tablecloth...



Just so pretty...

I also used my own stash of natural linen &, if you can believe it, an old window sheer that I found in my stack of stuff...
And, finally, this is pattern that I used for the top portion of my creation...

The Petal Knot Dress pattern by Sandi Henderson



So here it is...this is what I made...hope you like it...


This photo was entered into the "I Heart Faces" photo prop challenge


I used the blue floral fat quarter for the bodice of the top and the tablecloth as the main part of the top...


I loved that the tablecloth was circular because it lent itself to making a very interesting back to the top...I just cut it in half and attached it to the bodice...easy peasy...

You can see that I used the window sheer for the ruffle on the bottom of the linen pants...



Then I sewed the lace down the outside seam of the pants...I like the tuxedo-like feel it gives to them...and I just randomly placed the wooden buttons over the ruffle...
It's hard to tell from these photos, but I used some of the lace and some of the bias tape as headbands in Kate's hair...

So there you have it! I had the best time with this challenge...
It's really fun to have someone say - "Here you go! Do something with this..." - loved that.
