I have been planning on making this outfit since 2008 when I discovered the Modes Royale patterns. Of course other projects kept jumping in front of this one, and another designer made this before me, but I still was obsessed with making this design myself. I really like the idea of the lace sheath under an overdress or redingote. I started thinking about other possibilities and I ended up adding a sash, and a straight skirt to create four different outfit options. I wanted to make this…

I am beyond smitten with this fantastic soda shop illustration featuring a selection of spring fashions from 1949. #soda #shop #teenagers #spring #vintage #1940s #fashion #clothing #dress 1950s Fashion, Vintage Fashion, Vintage, Vintage Sewing Patterns, Vintage Dress Patterns, Vintage Ladies, Vintage Dresses, 1940s Fashion, 1940s

The gray days of winter have me looking forward to spring and lighter/brighter clothing. I scanned these from a 1949 insert of the pattern department of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

While the 30s is my absolute favorite era, there are so many things I love about the designs of this time period too. So pretty!
