The Pattern Give-away continues

Dresses!  Today's pattern give-away is all about Vintage Vogue dress patterns (two of them) from the 1940's.

Not the early forties rather the New Look styles that appeared after the war.  When restrictions on the fashion industry were challenged and hemlines fell from abundant amounts of skirt fabric defining an hour-glass figure.

If you're interested and a follower of the blog, just leave a comment on this post and I will draw for these ones on Monday.

So first up:

Vintage Vogue 2289, circa 1948, in size 8.

The pattern is in excellent condition and uncut.

Includes the pattern for the dress with a gathered neckline, cap sleeves, slightly flared skirt and belt.

And next:

Vintage Vogue 2787, circa 1948, in sizes 6, 8, and 10.

The pattern is in excellent condition and uncut.

Misses' A-line dress has shaped bodice front and cap sleeves.


  1. ooohh! Definitely count me in! these are so lovely! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  2. I think that the 40's and 50's were a great time for ladies fashions...there was a sense of pride in how women dressed...a lot of detail to the dresses as exhibited in the Vogue 2787 pattern...they weren't afraid to use darts and dart equivalents for shaping. Did your mother sew this dress for herself? It's beautiful...
