My second choice is this phenomenal skirt: Simplicity 1851 Enchanting "Ballet" Skirt, Cummerbund & Sash / ca. 1956
Tea length or evening length and two different sashes. Truly enchanting.
A little different in that this is more low key but still so lovely: Mail Order 4666 Radiant Jumper & Blouse 1950's. Daytime casual wear but eye-catching for sure. Some of these jumper patterns can double as a sundress too.
Smooth as silk is this Butterick 4811 Oh So Pretty Dress with Sailor Collar / ca. 1949
This fashion reminds me of those dignified movie stars like Grace Kelly.
A beautiful description on this next vintage pattern of Mail Order 1738 Touch of Glamour Dress 1940's which says: "Superby styled cap-sleeved dress, touched with glamour."
I learned a new word while researching some costume patterns - STEAMPUNK - how did I miss this LOL??? What a great word. It fits these goth type patterns like Simplicity 2757 Medieval Goth Overdress Costume 2008. This is a "costume" but heck it's perfect for a lady who likes to be offbeat.
Now this shirt is a rare one which I've had before and it always sold quickly: McCall's 6935 Zesty Western Shirt with Detachable Cape 1994 and if you love country western clothes what a great addition to your wardrobe it would be.
Gotta love this one! Vogue 1529 Spritely Tent Dress & Leggings 1995 a boho beatnik winner. Skip those shoes however - grin. Too clunky and gaudy. The leggings to me are also questionable - the dress is so springy and light looking that I'd want to make sure I don't detract from the dress. No leggings and lightweight sandals or shoes. Ta Da!
