My obsession with vintage reproduction patterns continues

I love when the opportunity to dress up presents itself!

I attended the opera this past Wednesday evening, so I had to pull out this gown (made for a gala event in 2009).  The pattern is from Eva Dress, originally Vogue 6111 from 1947.

Now that winter weather is here, I am rediscovering all of my long-sleeved dresses.

This dress was made using a pattern purchased from the Vintage Pattern Lending Library.  And I cannot wait to make up another version – the peplum version is calling out to me!

As much as I adore the Vogue and Butterick reproductions, it feels good to support the smaller companies that provide these beauties.

More pictures may be found over at my blog Lilacs & Lace, here and here.

I adore sewing and knitting, mostly vintage or vintage-inspired patterns.
