After writing about the Orry-Kelly designed fashions in the 1333 movie Baby Face with my gal Barbara Stanwyck, I decided to search the Internet for home sewing patterns that may have been cribbed from character Lily Power’s fabulous movie costumes. These are just some of the pretties that I found.

Check my blog for screen shots of the costumes that may have inspired these patterns.

Baby Face has some CRAZY dresses in it. Nothing can swallow Barbara Stanwyck, but some of these tried! Good luck on your search.
