So, I’ve been a spending machine lately! I’ve picked up a few pattern packets and a vintage Lutterloh folder filled with 100’s of drafting models. There’s patterns in there from 1972-1974 and the coats and jackets are fantastic. I also got a Enid Gilchrist drafting book. More for sentimentality than anythng really. (My mum used to use them when I was a kid.)
So here are my latest additions:
This first dress is a Lutterloh from 1974. The blue & white image is still a dress, just with contrasting skirt & top. I think this would make a great blouse.
Another Lutterloh from 1973. I love the silhoutte of the checked coat. The volumn in the back comes out from a curved yoke with buttoned tab in the centre.
1972. I like this simple halter that has the appearance of the skirt threading under and up the bodice. Pity this style does not suite me!
I like the vest on this one.
This one’s sweet… but don’t know if this would look to much like a costume. Even in modern fabric.
I really like the key-hole version but I think I’d make it with the cap sleeves.
