Cherry Pie

Posted by Picasa

How about a little pie to go along with yesterday's tea? This is a true vintage replication. I followed the 1955 pattern exactly. All the seams are bound in red bias tape. There are no exposed seams anywhere. It's even hand hemmed on the sides. I just couldn't stand hemming the bottom by hand, so it's blind stitched on the machine. The pockets are v-shaped and in the cherry print so that they blend in with the skirt and are lined in the red of the yoke.

So although the fabrics are not vintage, the look and the pattern sure are.
