This Vintage Pattern Contest is really inspiring! Or it’s driving me mad, one of the two. Because I don’t have enough of just making a dress, I thought I’d just go ahead and make a complete outfit — just in case I’d be invited to a fancy cocktail party. I know I won’t be, but I just don’t care 😉
Here’s what I’m hoping to make:
Top left is the dress from an old July 1959 issue of Dutch pattern magazine Marion. Top right is a capelet from a Simplicity pattern dated 1964. The gloves and the purse are patterns from the 40’s. I know, I’ll end up with an outfit spanning three different decades, but I thought they all matched, somehow.
I’ve started on my dress muslin, I’m ecstatic about the outcome — but I’ll keep that for my next blog post.
