Vintage Housecoat: Simplicity 4625

I had fun this weekend making up this vintage girls' housecoat pattern. I love the fact that the girl in green is holding a kitty!

It came out beautifully, in thrifted polished cotton. Unfortunately, too small through the shoulders for Bella, so I will be putting it in my shop.

I love the fact that the pattern calls for ruffles absolutely everywhere it can! Here they are frosting the top of the pocket. I used vintage bias binding to finish the inner ruffle edge--a little secret for the girl who's wearing it.

And I love the puffy sleeve finished with a ruffle.

Gorgeous! The ruffles are charming. I'm with you -- I think vintage pattern illustrations are almost as fun as the patterns themselves.

Just lovely, Anna. I hope it finds a dear little friend that will feel like a princess while wearing it.
You and your precious family have a beautiful day.
