Vintage Girls' Wrap Dress: Simplicity 6300


How long have I been telling Daisy I would not make her a wrap dress because there aren't any patterns for wrap dresses in her size? Oh thrift store, you proved me so wrong.


And you provided me with an extra large men's plaid shirt to make the dress out of. And I believe that brown grosgrain ribbon came from your shelves as well. But I won't give you credit for my raggedy flower. That was my own.


Thanks for the pictures, Giles! And enjoy that chocolate, Daisy.

A dress out of a men's shirt! How resourceful! Daisy looks like a real schoolgirl in that.

When I Google "simplicity 6300" I find a misses skirt pattern. What did I miss except that you can sew and I can not? Do you think a beginner could try this dress? There certainly are plenty of thrift stores with XL shirts to be had!

It's a vintage pattern, so google "vintage simplicity 6300". The company reused the number ( I don't know when that started) which means there are multiple styes under the same number. And yes, it's a great beginner pattern!

love!

As a child I had 2 plaid dresses and they were the favorites. I felt most like 'me' in plaid.
