vintage pattern galore
when i browse through eBay or etsy or vintage-related blogs, i always get fascinated by vintage dress patterns. (yes, i do mean fascinated.) they’re almost like little windows to the past. and the more yellowed or tattered the envelope is, the more drawn i am to it. and i’m not sure if that’s a normal thing..
this was taken just before the dress was completed. isn’t the pattern just the sweetest?
and here’s the lovely casey herself, wearing the dress on her birthday.
so i’m thinking of sending the whole thing to a professional dressmaker (i know, i know, it’s really lame). i guess what is more important to me is having a truly one-of-a-kind dress, something vintage-but-not-really, something i will love for all my life.
