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.
