A vintage pattern complete

Remember the drinks by the pool pattern?

Here it is on me ready to head out at Costume college. I made this pattern exactly as written just to see how it would act. I found it to be just the slightest touch too big in the bust- neckline as well as through the waist of the skirt.

And during construction

The buttons I decided to use

Matching toes to peek out of my sandals. 

Over all I was so pleased with my first walk on the vintage pattern side of the street. Vintage pattern choices make a wonderful day class option for costume college. You have the advantage of looking "in costume" while being comfortable and yet not taking up too much space in valuable lecture halls or workshops.
