vintage robe pattern from SerendipityVintage.Etsy.com

I recently bought several yards of a pretty satin fabric — white with a black floral pattern — at a fabric sale.  I’ve been wanting an elegant robe, and it occurred to me that this fabric would be perfect.  I decided that a vintage pattern would best suit what I had in mind, so I scoured Etsy and found several great patterns.  When I came across this pattern from Serendipity Vintage, I knew I found the one.  I adore the ruffles and the sleeves are just what I had in mind.

I’ve also had a great experience with Collette, the owner of Serendipity Vintage.  She shipped the pattern right away and sent me a sweet message.  The fabulous sellers are one of my favorite things about Etsy!  Her shop offers several wonderful vintage patterns, organized by decade, so it’s a great place to begin your search if you are interested in making a vintage-inspired garment.

My pattern should arrive any day now, and I can’t wait to get started on this new project!
