these are two dresses i made to wear to funerals (bummer) and have not posted yet..... so here they are! the first is from spadea N-1245 ( i wanna say this is 1963 but i'm not totally sure)
looking at it like this, the front and back totally look the same.
another pattern i got for free! wooooooo!
i made the entire dress in this black lace, which my sister picked up a bolt of for me from a huge yard sale at a big local theater
she loves me....
it's really light weight and soft, which is good for our weather. i've already worn this a couple times! the second dress is from simplicity 1536 from 1956.
this dress is a little too heavy to wear in the summer... it'll be a fall dress for sure!
the pattern is from my favorite vintage shop in town. they always have great patterns and clothes and furniture for super cheap! i think this was probably 50 cents or a dollar... and now that im writing about it, i realize i haven't been there in ages and perhaps i'll have to add that to my todo list for the weeked!
