Vintage Pattern Thursday

Vintage Pattern Thursday: Project Bridesmaid edition. In which I find a few cute vintage dress patterns that I think would be great to wear to a wedding.

Simplicity 5954: Particularly 3 & 4 on the top row (ok, maybe not in white). I like how they are both sweet and a little sexy.

Vogue 6968: Take a close look at the construction details. I love the way the sides are cut straight across and meet the front and back panels at a right angle.

McCalls 5734. That green dress is so sweet, and I love the way the waist element wraps.

That Simplicity pattern looks very familiar and so does the hair on the models. When I was in high school I'm sure my Mom made that dress and I have pictures of my sister and me with pouffy hair like that.

The Shalom Cardigan is beautiful in a mulberry heather. I made it a bit shorter to go just a couple inches below the waist, and have printed out the pattern for another friend. Easy construction is what I like best.
