I love wearing vintage style clothing and thought it would be fun to sew a 1960s inspired shirt using my sewing machine from the 1960s. I found a couple of vintage sewing patterns in my collection for knit shirts and some fabric a viewer sent me recently. I couldn’t decide between the two, so I asked on instagram which I should use for my 1960s inspired shirt.
Simplicity 3980 was the winner! Make sure you’re following me on Instagram so you can vote in my other polls! I followed the pattern to create view 1, a drop shouldered shirt with a cowl neck. This is a great casual shirt for Autumn and I can not wait to wear it.
See how the shirt came together HERE!
So what do you think, did I do the pattern justice? Would you like to see more projects like this where I’m following vintage patterns?
BTW did you know I have a huge giveaway going on right now?!? It’s to celebrate Whitney Sews reaching 100,000 subscribers on youTube. Check out the giveaway HERE so you have a chance to win!
Until next time, Happy Sewing!
