Pattern Number One: Butterick 5813
It seems to be fairly fitted through the waist with princess seams. However, all of the shaping in the bust appears to be gathers, which would make it super simple to adjust, should it be required (and it's always required).
Pattern Number Two: McCall 6834
This one isn't from a specifically retro line, but it seems very classic to me. I love how the pleats of the dress seem to flow out of the princess and center seams of the bodice. I feel like I'm going to have trouble making that line up properly.
And there we have it, a sneak peak into my Christmas List, and hopefully a view of projects I'll be working on soon!
