Every Hour; One Dress

by Erin on April 20, 2011


I love that with this one pattern you can be ready for anything: everything from drinking coffee in your nightgown to full-on evening wear. You can even throw it on over pants, if you like that sort of thing!

From the wiki, it looks like it might have once been available at Lanetz Living but some smart cookie snapped it up. You can still find one (cheap!) at Penny's Antique Dollhouse of Patterns ….

Yoink! It was in my size, I couldn’t resist. I have a vintage Vera bedsheet with a gorgeous border print that has been waiting for a dress to become.

didn’t Barbie (in the 60’s) have something like this in orange lace that went over a satin jumpsuit? Here I go dating myself again…

This is actually a fabulous dress pattern! Chic all the way.

OK, Yoink. You got there first. Wear it in good health!

That’s a fantastic pattern. I have a similar wrap dress pattern, but never thought of adding a shawl-sort a collar to it. So lovely, I may have to try it.

The “pants” today would be leggings or maybe jeggings.

Does Diane von Furstenburg know about this?

It looks like a brunch coat and a long brunch coat…

I clicked onto vintage wiki and had one of those revolting video commercials roll over my screen. Does that happen to anyone else? It didn’t even have a close button.

Eyelet!! I was doing my normal rounds of the blogs and as soon as I saw this I thought “OMG, it’s black eyelet! Wonder if Dress A Day saw this.” The simple pattern really showcased the lace too. Just perfect! http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/2011/04/daily-dress-nanette-lepore-eyelet.html
