After a year+ (and several other patterns) I'll finally be putting up the Vintage School Girl pattern on my Etsy shop. It's the first pattern I ever created, but one I never published.
I started out ambitiously as a designer, then dialed it back with some easier patterns on Etsy before I got this one to a state I really liked. I spent the last few days revisiting the design and seeing where it could be made better. Now I'm just polishing up the last minute details and cleaning up the digital files before it goes up on my shop today or tomorrow.
I decided on a late 60s - early 70s art theme for the pattern cover page. While the dress design was originally inspired by a 1920s school dress from an old family photo, I decided it could also fit well into a number of vintage themes from the 1920s to the 80s or 90s. So for the cover art I settled on something in between. A friend even told me recently they wore a school uniform almost exactly like this when they were in school back in the 70s! Mission accomplished. Looking to roll it out shortly. Stay tuned.
