The McCalls Instant skirt is very familiar. I think I had that one many years ago. I have kept some of my patterns although they no longer fit.

These would all make good PE projects,but I really love the Middy with shorts! Isn't that an interesting way to cut the collar?

I love the red dress that the top. That would be based on midriff waist dress, make the diamond piece, change the darts into gathers and divide the skirt into more panels. The neckline is a sweetheard and the extra cross pieces and bows would be from bias tubes. It would be some time on pattern editor.

I don't have the wasp waist anymore so I don't know if the skirt would suit me. I think I would omit the lower v shaped part and just add a skirt with a bit of gathering on the front for my belly.

I was thinking the same, Coopie!

The world just does not have enough middy collars these days.

I just found this at the thriftstore. It's home made. It has princess armscye seams but the sleeve is attached to the center-upper part of the bodice.

I cannot see your pix on either of my 'puters. The little square says they have been moved or deleted.

What a lucky find and it fits you so well!  I like the style and color, too...awesome! 

Threads Magazine had instructions for that kind of sleeve many years ago...I think their example was also red!  but a jacket...

Look at the date of the posts and begin with her post on 9-23, just a few up.  That first one shows me no pics either!

You look lovely in the dress.

Can you please describe how the waist was done? Or a close- up photo?

Thank you.

So the top portion of the bodice is sewn in double thickness. Though not like a lining, just two layers of the same fabric basted together and sewn as one. But there are only two thicknesses on the midriff section. It's almost like the interior of the dress is one piece, and the exterior including the midriff is one piece and they are sewn together. Makes me want to rip it apart to see what's going on. The skirt has a small crinoline inside but I actually wore it with one of my own petticoats for more oomph. I tried to take a picture of the inside but my camera wouldn't focus. There are covered buttons on center front. And a little tuck at the elbow on the undersleeve seam.
Here is a close up of the front.

Here you can see the little elbow tuck.

Here is the back midriff. I think that little button must have been to hold a bow or something.

And the front midriff.

If that dress was made from a pattern it must have been a Vogue designer pattern. Looks beautiful on you. What is the fabric?

I'm not sure if it's silk or synthetic. The weave is like a tiny twill, medium weight but very tightly woven.

I think that is a butterfly raglan. Maybe wrong, of course.

Great outfit.  I love the fact that your photo looks like a vintage postcard.

You look all put together, very nice job!
Is this the same blouse you are wearing in your sailor short photo?
I was wondering if you had made that from the program when viewing the other thread.

To make the picture look old fashioned I used an iPhone app called Instagram. It's free and the options are very cool.

Thanks everyone! Yes, it's the same blouse from the shorts picture. This pattern is from an old 50's magazine. It's SOOOOO simple and perfect for smocking. Leaves very few scraps if you plan the layout right. Just a bunch of rectangles sewn together with under arm gussets. I'll post the pattern on my blog soon; just need to get around to it

Marie-Anne,

Your blog is adorable and you are so talented.  The music is definitely boffo.  I'm about ready to start fitting my slopers and your blog was very helpful in that regard.  I'm still looking for pics of your midi blouse and the greaser jeans.  Do you have those posted anywhere? 

Cindy
