My MIL gave in and let me take a huge stack of her vintage baby dress patterns, ranging from the 1940's to the 70's, collected from various family members over the years.  It spurred my obsession with vintage patterns, and I also purchased a lot on ebay.  This dress I made for a friend's wedding.  I found the fabric at Joann's (Tracy Porter), and it was selected to match the cutest little orange squeaker mary janes.

I really need to dress her back up and get a better picture.  The photographer at the wedding did get a couple of really nice shots which I have ordered, but they are not here yet.  For now, this is the only shot I have.

I'm sending you to my blog to see the pictures because I am at work right now (shhh...don't tell anyone) and have a limited time to post this.  Enjoy:

Okay, I got a minute to grab the URL of the pictures off my blog:

Oh, I forgot to mention that I decided that the dress must be fully lined, it was an evening wedding in September, after all.  So you'll notice that the finished version differs from the pattern in that the sleeves are lined and there is an underskirt of contrasting fabric.  The bodice was lined, too, so she would stay warm.

So sweet - that must be a pattern from the 60's - looks just like the types of dresses my mom used to put me in when I was a little girl.

That is so pretty, I love the addition of the underskirt and the fabrics look brilliant together.  Looking forward to action pics!

Very cute!  You did a great job on the dress, and I'm sure she looked adorable in it.  I have a few of those vintage patterns as well. Smiley
