ugly vintage patterns…oh. YES. i did.

Simple Simon and Co have the  best series. An ugly vintage pattern series.

and i love vintage.

I perused alllll the vintage patterns I could find.

it’s so pretty…and wrong all in one KAbang! i decided to keep the pink…and the lace…and the basic(y) shape of the back…. lacy back shirt--a girl and a glue gun

i posted this picture on instagram (agirlandagluegun if you want to follow me!!!!)

let me tell you.  I watch this show..and she takes the dress and picks it apart and starts sewing….and every.stinking.time I hope it’s a different outcome. i just don’t love it.

but i do love my ugly vintage pattern/pretty in pink knock off….
ugly vintage pattern redo

this cute girl won’t wear jeans…only leggings…so i’m always looking for long tunic type shirts for her. (i will probably have her wear her tank top underneath…but we were trying to keep it as close to the awesome (ahem cough ahem) pattern.

here’s the front view…
