My mom had a lot of patterns from the 1960s…

If I look I might find some of them in my possession. One pattern that I was thrilled to see re-released was Vogue 8875.

Apparently Vogue didn’t keep files of some of their vintage patterns and so they asked folks to share some of their patterns with them so they could be re-released.

Isn’t this style lovely? These type of designs never seem to go out of style. I’m not much for trendy, but I do love classic pieces such as the one above.

Will I make this? I’ve made similar… and I’m tempted to make another outfit, but most likely if I did something such as this, I’d make the coat a bit longer and pair it with flowing wide legged pants and fitted sleeveless top. I most definitely wouldn’t wear the hat.

Besides changing the color of the outfit, the shoes I’d choose would have a chunkier heel but they’d most likely be about the same height.

Here’s the original pattern. It’s the same pattern, but the re-released pattern was ‘modernized’.
