I'm sorry. This is about a wedding-related thing.
So. I've been making lots of calls to places all over St. Louis, Chicago, AND Kansas City. And there are, like, NO short dresses. It's driving me crazy.
So I had this scathingly brilliant idea the other night. There's this great place by my apartment called The Future Antique. It's basically a wonderland - all kinds of great stuff from the 1950s, 1960s, etc. I like looking at all the clothes there.
Last time I was there, I noticed an entire shelf of vintage patterns for pants, shirts, dresses, skirts...all different types of clothing.
So I think my next step is going to be to find a dress pattern, buy a ton of fabric, and try to find someone who wants to make me the dress! I would do it myself but I have no clue how to use a sewing machine.
Here are some patterns I've found online and love, so far:
Love the short dress on the right - without those weird, puffy sleeves.
Bateau neckline? Yes please!
I like this one both with and without the sleeves.
I think this one is my favorite.
So, if anyone knows of a dressmaker/seamstress that wants to make a dress out of a pattern...I would love to hear from you :)
