Hello all!! First off, I would like to say that I am extremely new to Craftster and I adore everything about it! The creativity levels of all you ladies !and gentlemen! (I am constantly assuming that everyone on here is a women, apparently I am a sexist pig, please forgive me) never cease to wow and amaze me! That being said, I would like to ask a quick question that I desperately hope someone can help me with. I need a pattern for a cutesy, shortish (knee length or even mid calf is great, but nothing to the floor) dress with SHORT SLEEVES. I live in Texas where it is roughly a billion degrees most of the time and there are plenty of patterns for adorable halter dresses or sleeveless, strapless, or small strapped dresses, but I can find little or nothing close to what I am looking for. I absolutely detest showing my arms and apparently this has doomed me to wear dowdy grandma dresses for the rest of my life. I have found the following pictures online of dresses that I like, but it doesn't necessarily have to look anything like these. I went crosseyed at the pattern catalogue table at Joann's last night trying to find something suitable. Does anyone have any ideas? I am a huge fan of the 40s and 50s rockabilly style clothing, but suggestions from any time period would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
