Handmade Vintage Simplicity 7480 in Vintage Plaid

My first piece for the Tin Thimble’s second annual Handmade Summer Wardrobe Fashion Show. The show was an absolute success last year and I am so thrilled to be organizing it again this year. I made this piece using a vintage 1970’s Simplicity 7480 and vintage 1940’s plaid fabric. I feel so confident in this top and I can’t wait for the fashion show! 

I made the blouse version, and finished the entire top with french seams so that the inside is lovely too.


  1. Cute top. Love the exposed metal zipper in the back; gives it a modern twist.
