My latest vintage pattern purchase

Isn’t this vintage dress pattern fantastically cute? I especially love the border print dress – you know I have a soft spot for border prints!

And apparently,┬áit comes with┬áinstructions for making the parasol as well. I don’t have an immediate need for a parasol, but just in case I feel the urge (or am looking for a challenge), I’ll have the instructions on hand. Yay!

I found this on at Serendipity Vintage and couldn’t resist snatching it for myself. If you love vintage patterns, check out her site for more! Shipping is available to Canada too.

Now I have to be patient and wait for it to arrive…

    I also have a soft spot for border prints! This is an adorable pattern, good luck and I say – go for the parasol. Because, when you want it, you won’t have time to make it. AND how many people can say they have a fantastic retro dress with matching vintage parasol? I’ll take a risk and less no one. ;)

    Agreed. The parasol would be perfect at weddings where you have to sit outside – no one likes getting so hot they start to sweat and their eyes start to burn. Sounds gross, but it happens. Fun!

    I love, love, love this!! Great pattern and who wouldn’t love a matching parasol? I will definitely have to take a look at that website and see if I can find some goodies myself. I have yet to purchase a true vintage pattern, only the reproductions of the Vintage Vogue patterns. Any thoughts on what type of fabric you would do for this dress? Would love to see what you are thinking of!

    Thanks everyone! Looks like I’ll be making a parasol then.. and I’ll definitely have to share pictures if I do!
    I haven’t bought fabric for this one yet, I’m still on the hunt for the perfect border print fabric…but I might test it out with the red linen i bought on this shopping trip ( just to see how it fits. Will keep you posted!

    Thanks for posting links to the online stores. I’ve been looking for a vintage shirtwaist pattern for days, and I just found one thanks to you! Love the Pendrell blouse, by the way. I’ll be purchasing a pattern shortly.

    Hi MJ – that’s awesome! How great that this older post helped find you the pattern you’d been searching for! Thrilled to hear you love the Pendrell blouse as well :)
