Ah, back to vintage sewing. I think now that we’ve settled into the back-to-school routine, I should be able to spend more time on complicated projects. McCall’s 3988 is one of my favorite patterns in my collection. The button band was quite complicated, so I ended up leaving it off. Other than that, it’s a very straight forward sew. I do plan on sewing it again. Next, I want to try the slim skirted version, then I will use a circle skirt instead of the dirndle skirt. I don’t need any extra fabric on my waist or hips! As an aside, this spring, I stopped dyeing my hair. This is the first picture that seems to show more gray than dyed hair. I’m really happy to see the progress.
