I LOVE dresses....ESPECIALLY Retro dresses! Floaty dresses!

April Cornell's lovely frock, based on a 1920's design! Note the dropped curved waist and softly gathered skirt!
For everyday, a cotton calico print with a high waist...so comfortable! From April Cornell again, though on sale, these dresses are now only available in extra small....so I will sew some dresses myself!


Found some inspiration on THIS BLOG. And her most often used pattern....


Simplicity 1577 from 1956!



A dress a day, doing 100 dresses! Why not?

I found several retro patterns...real antiques now....and have ordered them!





I also found a web page of like-minded creative souls ....."We Sew Retro"! Fabulous!



I already have several dress lengths of wonderful cottons, so once my patterns arrive, I can begin these!

I won't be doing one every day though! LOL!

Somehow this reminds me of a sewing business in Little Rock, long ago! Enjoy your sewing and patterns. Nope, I'm NOT getting drawn in to this one!

Seems you are right, Sylvia!
I think it is time for dresses again...at least to sew up, then decide about wearing them!
The fantasy lives on!
