Finally!! After several months of search Anne-Sophie has found the pattern she likes for the gala dress I'm going to make her for the gala party in May.
She wanted something simple and elegant, and not too dressed up. And furthermore she would like to find a vintage pattern from the 50s.
Besides that she had several wishes in proportion to the neckline, the sleeves, the length and the shape.
Whenever we found something Anne-Sophie liked, we were met by difficult circumstances. The size was wrong, they didn't ship to Denmark or they only took cash payment.
But yesterday was our lucky day. All of a sudden the dress was there. A vintage Butterick pattern from the late 50s or early 60s turned out to be the right one.
So, if you can imagine the sleeves from the fitted dress put on the dress with the circle skirt, then you know how we are going to sew Anne-Sophies dress.
Now we only need to find the right fabric and a petticoat....
