Pattern Review is having a Vintage Pattern Contest
and I can't decide which pattern I want to use for my entry!
I've narrowed it down to these 3 patterns and 3 fabric choices:
I got this on Etsy with the idea of using it in the contest.
Gotta love the back neckline and sleeve bands on this one, so elegant!
Another Etsy pattern picked up with the contest in mind.
I love this dress, the round yoke with the big button detail is one of my favorites!
The drawback here is this pattern is a "perforated pattern" - no printing, just lot's o' dots to identify pieces, etc. Also the instructions are very scant. I've gone over them and it all seems pretty straight forward just means I'll have to pay extra attention during construction.
Honestly, I've got a lot on my plate right now so I don't know if I can spare the brain power and energy!
I picked up this pattern at the DI a while back for 50 cents!
I love the sash and the collar - and yes, I admit I have a thing for neckline details.
Of course I have to go with view 3, I could never pull off those sleeves with my girls!
The good news is, I've already tissue fit this pattern.
The bad news is, it might be too tight now.
Part of the Challenge is too make the garment wearable for today, and not costume-y.
I love the fabric line Silent Cinema by Jenean Morrison
These fabrics have a bit of a vintage vibe, while still feeling modern, so I think they'll be perfect for my dress (which ever one it will be...)
Okay, I know what your thinking "that's pretty bold!" Right?
But I'm thinking of using it only as an accent, like piping.
See? Not so scary now, right?
Aren't they all wonderful? I'd love several yards of every fabric in the line!
Right now I'm leaning towards the Sew-Rite pattern, and the Gray/Blue color scheme.
or maybe the Simplicity in pink...
What do you think?!
