Flash Back to 1972

This morning, I took a little sewing trip back to 1972 with Simplicity pattern 5370 and 2 yards of a pink and green seagull print polyester obtained in a garage sale box lot.

I know polyester has a bad wrap, and I would never purchase it new, but I really don't mind it. And, Gypsy Rose Vintage Boutique customers (who are mostly young, broke and fabulous college students) love it, so I will be using up my stash and patterns to create a few fun looks for them - like this babydoll dress.

Gypsy Rose (701 S Boulevard in Edmond) features an eclectic mix of vintage clothing, accessories and home goods from the 1930s - 1970s. My little corner offers vintage sewing supplies - fabric, patterns, trims, buttons and notions for the DIY fashionista.
