I've decided to create a series of inspiration boards for the vintage patterns
I feature on Esty. Firstly, I love inspiration boards - they give me a chance
to play with images and colour and I enjoy this. Secondly, I think it helps
visualise the look of the garment. It's not meant to be an actual representation
of the finished article but more a "look and feel. " For the source photographs
on the inspiration boards go to my Polyvore site.
Many of my vintage patterns are carefully selected for features that I like.
At the moment I'm focussed on cocktail, evening wear and some lingerie.
Key feature of this 1940s Advance pattern are:
- cross over or racer-style back
- cross over gathered bodice
- bias cut
While this is labelled as a nightgown pattern, it makes a wonderful option
for evening wear - something like this perhaps?
