>I can finally share what I’ve been secretly working on!
I’m happy to announce I have a new reproduction pattern for sale on the website!
This pattern features two really lovely mid 1930s dresses with art deco influence. Version I has a high neck and assymetrically fastening bodice, and Version II has a lovely drape.
I made my sample of Version II from a green linen/rayon blend fabric I dyed myself. Following the vintage instructions, I made bound buttonholes and have a fun cuff link style button fastening at the neck. I used vintage buttons from my stash as accents. I absolutely LOVE this dress. I think it might be a new favorite! The triple pleats make it so much fun to wear and move in. I can just imagine how chic this could look in a variety of fabrics- from wools to linens to cottons to silks. Yummy! It would also look very chic and dressy under a stylish 30s overcoat.
This pattern is available in multsize on my website, from a size 30 bust through a size 40 bust. The retail price is going to be $25, but I have a special introductory rate of $22 for a limited time. This pattern starts shipping next week.
I’ll be posting a bound buttonhole tutorial on the blog soon, in honor of the new pattern. 🙂
Hope you love it! I’m so happy to finally have a dress added to the pattern offerings!
