As a kid, whenever I would whine about wanting the coolest new fashion trends (that also happened to come with a hefty price tag), my mother would remind me of how she always made her own outfits growing up.
She tried to show me the ropes on her sewing machine, too, but I never quite got the hang of it. The best I was ever able to produce was a slightly lopsided pillow. That’s one of the many reasons I’m impressed by ladies who have a knack for whipping up their own beautiful attire, especially when it comes to the beautiful dresses shown below that women have worn over the years.
It’s not only a wonderful trip down fashion memory lane, it also might even inspire you to purchase a few of the patterns yourself and fire up your old machine for a nostalgic new frock.
Take a look and let us know in the comments if you remember crafting dresses like this back in the day.
