It’s time to dress like your grandma! Or someone else’s grandma! Or just any vintage photo 1980’s or earlier that you’re inspired to recreate. I’ve had a wonderful time perusing family photo albums searching for photos of garments that I’d love to sew. I’ve loved looking at the treasured family photos participants are sharing in our Facebook group and seeing what your plans are on Instagram, using the hashtag #dresslikeyourgrandma. But don’t forget to join our group Pinterest board to pin what you make so that I can include you in the roundup at the at the end of this non-competitive challenge and be eligible for some amazing participant prizes. For all of the details, check out this post.
Here are some outfits I’m inspired by from my family albums paired with similar patterns that could be used as a base for these styles:
I can tell you that it’s super fun looking at photos and trying to figure out what they’re wearing and finding patterns that might work to recreate the style! I have my picks narrowed down to three (not shown here) — but I hope to sew all of those someday! For now, I think I only have time for one. 🙂
