When Simplicity announced it’s Simplicity Sewing Challenge, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to enter my first ever judged sewing challenge/competition. Of course, I had to enter the Vintage Section, even though it was a halter neck top, which is a style of clothing I just don’t wear any more. Oh well, a challenge in more ways than one then! Here is the pattern:

Well, over the past few weeks I’ve managed to increase my vintage pattern collection quite considerably!
You can get some real treasures on ebay – I won an auction for a lot of 12 vintage patterns and it was like Xmas when I opened up the parcel!

Unfortunately Maudella patterns never seem to have a year printed on the envelope or the sewing instruction sheet, which is a real shame. So I’m guessing this pattern is from the early 60’s, maybe late 50’s. I can’t wait to make this one, I think it’s rather unusual. Talking about unusual Maudella patterns, how about this one?
