Fashion ATC

I made this ATC for the current challenge at Think Monday Think ATC.  The theme is "Fashion."  Lots of directions to go with that.  I thought of making your own creations and sewing.  It is fun to pick out a pattern and fabric.  Although I haven't sewn for a long time, in my younger days, I made a lot of my own clothes (when it was economical to sew!).

All the elements here are from a couple 70s sewing patterns.  The larger image was from the black and white instructions; I colored the outfit with good ol' markers.

Have a fun day!


  1. Love your fashion ATC! I still sew a bit when I can get my old machine to work. I'm the worst about getting the tension right. And you're right about sewing not being as economical as it was. I only buy patterns when they're 5 for $10 at the fabric shop. I can't believe some patterns are almost $20.00. Of course, fabric is expensive too. Instead of feeling virtuous about saving money by sewing, I think I'd better switch my thinking toward "sewing is creative!" to justify my material stash!

  2. What fun! I love these and it's a nice way to remember back with a ATC card!

  3. great ATC, thanks for sharing at TMTA

  4. It was definitely more economical to sew our clothes back when this pattern was made. Love your ATC.
