After finishing her own dress, she also sewed a darling pink dress for her little sister from the same fabric as her Liesl dress! (The pattern for Liesl’s Dress in Little Girls’s Sizes hadn’t been released at that point yet, so she concocted her own design with a similar fluttery skirt).
But that is not the only Edelweiss Patterns inspired dress that Joy sent pictures of. Remember the blue silk 1950s dress I made last fall from Butterick 5556? She also recreated a near replica of my dress using the same silk dupioni and vintage pattern, and she added buttons up the front just as I did. I’m posting a comparison photo below, but I put more pictures of her version over on the Facebook page.
So after seeing these gorgeous dresses that she sewed, I’m feeling very inspired to finish up the current sewing projects I have so I can whip up some vintage dresses to wear this spring! (I won’t say yet what exactly I’m working on, but there are going to be some fabulous 1950s dresses that you’ll be seeing in the near future – and it has to do with a new 1950s pattern that I’m thrilled about using.)
If any of you have made vintage dressses for spring or summer, I’d love for you to share the link so we can all enjoy the pictures!
