I love vintage patterns and have a huge collection of them.  I even use them sometimes.  Wink
Here is a recent project.  I bought the pattern on ebay, and made the dress out of stretch denim.  I want to make another, maybe in satin or silk to wear on special occasions.
Here's the pattern:

and here's my take on it:


Thanks for looking  Smiley

Hi.  I have been sewing for a very long time.  I'm probably one of the oldest members here.  Your dress is just outstanding.  I adore the pattern. What a wonderful job you did and such a gorgeous dress.

I love vintage patterns and I absolutely love the way you executed your dress. Empire waists are a current obsession of mine, and this one looks great on you. You should definitely create a formal wear version. It would probably turn out divine.
