Modernizing Vintage Sewing Patterns

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: Often have I flipped through stacks of vintage patterns at flea markets, antique malls and thrift stores. Many of these looks could easily be just as fashionable worn today with updated fabric and perhaps a little tweaking. That is precisely what blogger and seamstress Novita Estiti does. She took a dated pattern (not that Diane Von Furstenberg ever goes out of style) and made it into something unique and modern. -Jen]

Blogger Novita switched things up commenting: I shortened the dress a bit, put it on again and still didn’t feel comfortable with the length. Cut and tried again several times and suddenly it is now drastically a mini dress. Or maybe a tunic? Anyhow, I feel that this is working now!
