Pattern Review: B Line 6362

Pin It Do you sew with vintage patterns?  How about just old ones? 

Recently I came across an old pattern my mother had for sewing for me and my sisters.  It is B line 6362, a spin-off pattern line by Butterick.  It contains a dress shirt, vest, skirt, shorts, leggings, and a tie.  Yep, a tie.
If you are my age, you probably remember wearing a similar outfit with very tall bangs.

But I decided that a vest would be a nice addition to Abi's wardrobe so I sewed up this very easy pattern.  It is a lined vest, but this is a simple project.  I have also sewn up the leggings and they are a great one-piece leg pattern.


Sizes available:  The pattern only comes in sizes 7-10.  But the vest looked big so I tried it on.  Well, it fit me so depending on how loose you want it, it could fit most pre-teens.

Special materials required:  2 buttons
Skill level required: beginner

Good:  It is easy.
Bad:  It is quite baggy and does not come in a lot of sizes.

Overall pattern rating  I give this pattern three bolts because it is a bit dated and may be hard to find.  But the individual pieces can be modernized and turn out pretty cute.
