Today’s Pattern Story: Vogue 9003

by Erin on May 24, 2010


Hortense: It's only a matter of time until little Daphne back there is completely under my spell. She looks so innocent and oblivious now, but once she loses those puffed sleeves and the floral prints, I will be able to absorb her energy into mine and I will RULE the bridge club!

Daphne: If I can only keep up this ditz act for a few more weeks, Hortense won't know what hit her. I'll be able to consolidate my power with the disaffected officers and I will RULE the bridge club! But damn, these puffy sleeves itch. 

[Pattern from Capricorn Vintage, who is selling off her stash (!!!).]

But what happened to Daphne’s other leg? I can’t see how she’s going to rule the bridge club unless she can find it…

I love love love the long sleeve version. I doubt it would look as great on my more that 20″ waist(quite a bit more).

Team Daphne! Blondes always have more fun.

PS: can someone direct me to a post that describes the new website? All our avatars are gone!!!!!! How do I even know I’m at the REAL dressaday? Has there been an attack upon the International Sewing Conspiracy Headquarters?? IT’S ALL SO NEW! And disturbing.

Love it! I like your new logo, too!

Love you new look and the story! Hortense will so beat our Daphne!

This dress is adorable. However, Erin, I’m disappointed that you neglected to mention Daphne’s doing all of this while (apparently) only having one leg, making it an even more impressive feat! Obviously she has a secret Borg leg tucked up underneath her skirt- she’s hiding it from Hortense to add to the illusion of innocence, but once she has control of the bridge club, she will rule with a silicon leg!
