Vintage in vogue





This afternoon I was given a wonderful opportunity to look through a huge box of old dressmaking patterns and these were the ones I selected. Aren't they great, so stylish. Wouldn't Audrey Hepburn love some of these frocks? I hope one day Darling Daughter might want something like these for a formal dress, fingers crossed, I think I would love whipping one of these beauties up for her. Not the baby one or the aprons though, thought they might be cute made up in some of the new fabrics around in the patchwork stores.

Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O .... the red sheath is fabulous, but you have be a skinny minnie to pull that one off.

I love the belted dresses with full skirts! So pretty.

These are gorgeous!

I have a small collection of vintage patterns myself, including a wedding dress pattern.
Unfortunately, I don't think I have the cinched in waist that these dresses would demand!
