I’ve been digging around in my quilting stash for fabrics to make other projects. I just made 2 projects using my stash of reproduction 1930s fabrics. I love these reproduction fabrics, but since most of my recent quilts have had a modern edge, I just haven’t been using them.
The baby dress above, is made with one of the 1930s reproduction fabrics, with a solid cotton as the interfacing. The pattern is NEWLOOK 6568. This baby dress is a lot like the doll clothes I make. Except, it has a button closure in back, not velcro.
Gasp. Buttons mean making button holes. That’s not a skill in the quilter’s wheelhouse! I knew my second hand Bernina wasn’t up to the task. So I got out my newer Janome Memory Craft 6700P machine, watched a couple YouTube segments and now I can make button holes! Easy Peasy!
There is lots of gathering in this sweet little baby dress and I love the flair they give the skirt!
Here’s the other outfit using reproduction 1930s fabrics that I’ve finished recently. This is for the little Waldorf baby doll I designed. it’s a little pioneer outfit.
This tiny 1930s print is just perfect for this little doll!
I just pulled out another 1930s reproduction, a black fabric with dogs, to make a child’s skirt. I have the perfect pattern….and it has lots of buttons!! So I’ll get more practice making button holes soon!
