My daughter wanted a vintage nurse outfit for Halloween. She found the out of print Simplicity Pattern created in 1991 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Pearl Harbor and I set to work. The cape is a vintage cape from that era purchased on ebay.
My sister in law sent me a vintage Vogue pattern purchased in the early 80’s. I loved the lines of the skirt and it was the perfect style for some heavy woven fabric with a reverse weave design on the back side.
