[/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]I am such a big fan of heirloom and vintage patterns.  I love to look at old Simplicity and Vogue magazines.  The sleek lines and fitted clothing.  The children of the 50’s with their short little dresses and puffy sleeves.  I did everything I could to get the children to like the Dick and Jane books, and believe it or not, when my baby was little, most of my inspiration came from those little story books.

This weekend I was able to create a lovely little heirloom piece using the Bobkin “Sunday’s Best” pattern.  Loved it.  As usual her patterns are so well drafted, and I feel the fit is much more true to size then many patterns currently on the market.  The dress you see in the images is a size 2, chest measuring 20in., and length 20in..  I did alter the pattern somewhat, because you know me.  I prefer buttons in the back and I liked the idea of puffy gathered sleeves.  I added two different sashes to the dress, because I wanted to offer the customers a chance to choose which one they liked best – the bow or the apron.  Either way, this dress is cute and simple, but I am sure it will become a favorite.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
