Vintage winter holidays party outfit ideas

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 😉

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.
