Once again you look incredible! I love this dress and the fabric print. So sorry it was not the happiest you work with! But you look fabulously smart in it and very vintage! Huzzaaaaaah!!!

Love this one! The plaid is very sharp-looking, and the color is a favorite of mine. :) I like the collar, it is a style on two vintage dress patterns I have yet to sew but I surely like how it looks and lays. In spite of the difficulties you mentioned, the photos turned out lovely. Your smile is so big and bright! ;)


Perfectly fabulous!! You're exactly right about the style - it is simple and yet so, so elegant!! :) And your hat is drool-worthy. Beautiful!!


Wow! I can’t wait to buy a hot and chic multicolour dress like yours. However, I would choose cotton stuff and a floral print.

I love the color and fabric of your vintage outfit.You look super cute in this dress.


A beautiful dress!
I love green, and plaid, and fifties, and this is just the right collar!
If you ever want to sell this dress, let me know! :)
It will fit me too!!!
Do you have an idea where I could get a pattern for this?
It is lovely to find a sister in Christ, and see all your modest dresses and outfits for my own sewing inspiration!!

Hi Audra,

Welcome! I'm so glad you've enjoyed browsing my blog!

Not sure I'll ever sell this dress, because I find myself wearing it quite often...:-) But the pattern number is Butterick 6253, so hopefully that will help you to snag a copy for yourself. eBay or Etsy would be a good place to start looking for your own copy. I'm delighted that you like the dress so much! :-)
