Today, I bring you three vintage dress patterns from a wonderful blog I like to follow for inspiration.
Erin over at A Dress A Day has now posted a hundred dresses that she`s made. (Take a moment and let that sink in. 100 dresses she has made. Anyway...) She usually accompanies the dress with the pattern she used as well. Which means I have a small list of patterns she`s shown that I`d somehow like to acquire.
So, today I present to you three of my favorites!
This dress looks super cute, but also pretty casual. It seems like something I could wear all day while I do whatever errands I need to do, but could also wear to the office. Erin posted about it first here, but went on to post quite a few more.
Mail Order Pattern 4946:
I certainly couldn`t pull of the seersucker with yoke stripes going the opposite direction from the bodice stripes. But, that`s exactly what Erin did, which I`d say is suitably impressive. I think I`d be far more likely to use either a solid and a print, or use the same fabric for the yoke and the dress.
This dress is adorable. It`s another dress that I could see being perfect for doing errands in or going out for coffee or lunch. It`s even got pockets! Erin had a bit of an obsession with the dress, starting here. There`s a long list of posts where she`s shown this dress. I`d be hard pressed to pick a favorite, which I`m taking as a sign that I should make this for myself.
And this concludes today`s Trio of Dresses. If you`re ever in the market for some pretty dresses, you should definetly go check out the hundred dresses as A Dress A Day. I know I`ve started a vintage pattern wish list!
