of a waistline. Now that the rush to get things done for Christmas is over, I've begun browsing vintage dress patterns online. I'm dreaming of spring and a baby and normal (my ideal normal anyway) clothing without stretchy waistbands and being able to wear something with shape to it.
I have to be able to alter any patterns I buy to have a tie waist - for extra post baby pudge :(
and it must have nursing accessibility. Here are some of my favorites off of etsy.com I love this blouse in view D and C. Wouldn't it be great with one of the skirts in the other patterns below? My 80 something year old Grandma always inspires me to look put together and dress nicely even just for everyday.
The gored skirts, view B and C are my favorites. With that blouse above and a pair of summer sandals, I'd be all set.
I made our daughters a dress with this sort of neckline and it was so simple and quick to make. I love that it is loose fitting - very flattering post pregnancy!
Love, love, love numbers 2 and 3 here on this retro skirt pattern. It looks like it even has pockets! I'd have to make the back waist band with elastic though.
I don't care at all for the striped version of this dress but I really do like the one the lady is wearing with short sleeves. It looks like an easy design. BTW, is that a football helmet on her head?
This polka dotted blue version would be great post baby if I made the back panel a bit wider and included the tie waist. Before I buy any patterns though I need to go up to the unheated sewing room and dig through the patterns I already have and see what is useful.
Thanks for dreaming with me!
