More Vintage Inspirations

In the pursuit of a dress pattern for a wedding in August, I have become totally overwhelmed by the choices available to me. Life was so much simpler before I discovered Etsy!

And today, I added to my confusion by clicking on a link to Evadress .

All of the images in the post are taken from vintage or reproduction patterns available from that site.

Wow! I have never seen such a well-edited collection of stunning patterns!

I could reinvent myself a hundred times!

This is me on my way for cocktails in New York. By private jet.


Here I am as a socialite Land Girl on my (afternoon) tea break. Just don't ask me to do any work.



Or how about this? I am an interior designer who specialises in Picture Palaces.



And this is a picture of me and my ladies getting ready to attend a soiree in Bloomsbury with the Bells and the Woolfs.
Talk to the hand...
And in answer to your question: no, I haven't chosen a pattern yet.
I just need to look around a little more and sew a blouse or two while I think.

I wish I could sew. It's either sewing classes or sugarcraft, I think, once I am able to go out baby-free for a few hours. Sugarcraft tastes better, of course.

The dresses on the EvaDress site are gorgeous! I rather fancy this one: http://www.evadress.com/4292.html for the school run. :-P

You don't need to re-invent yourself...Do them ALL!! I change my "look" all the time. Cowboy, Urban, Relaxed, Vacation, biker (both motorcycle & Bicycle,),Jazz etc... I get tired of the same thing really fast.
