Vintage Capsule Wardrobe – Full Circle Dress

Vintage Capsule wardrobe – Full Circle Dress

Making progress on this dress! Getting ready to put the zipper in… wish me luck, I’ve been fighting with my sewing machines all day….

Some stretch soft texture!


Here’s the top inspired by Butterick 6620, over added a couple of darts to give it some shape. Hemmed the bottom and sleeves. It will be perfect to throw on with a pair of cigarette pants to run to the fabric store!

I’m self drafting this dress based off of a blouse pattern that I don’t have. It’s looking pretty good. I’ve made several patterns including a short sleeve version. This one will have 3/4 length sleeves and a full circle skirt.

I’ve also cut out a 3/4 circle skirts out of a red linen. I’m pretty sure I have enough to make the short sleeve shirt to go with it.

Finished circle skirts

After finishing 4 circle skirts, I decided that i would actually wear them! It was a great way to pick myself up and feel special. It also turned out to be a great marketing tool!

My first stop the day was Circle K and the cashier loved it. She placed an order and has picked up her skirt! After the third day of wearing my skirts my daughter’s neighbor stopped me, after chatting for a few minutes she placed and order for matching Mom and daughter skirts!

I’ve managed to finish 12 women’s circle skirts!

Check back soon for new listings to my shop as I get these new skirts posted! As always special orders available. Feel free to contact me with any questions!
