I've been collecting vintage patterns for months, and I finally decided to sew one up! This is Simplicity 7563, I found at the thrift store for $0.50!
It was very simple to sew, but I learned quite a few new things. •how to put in a zipper
• how to under stitch
• how to slip stitch
• how to make pleated pockets ( the pattern called for plain patch pockets)
• how to make a detached Peter Pan collar, it wasn't part of the pattern but makes a cute addition I think!
