Vintage Sewing eBay Roundup – Party Dress Edition

by Andrea

I’ve got party dresses on the brain this week!  It’s not too late to start sewing that perfect dress for New Year’s Eve.  Here’s some fantastic mid-century finds from eBay!

First up, we have this Vintage Simplicity Pattern 7807 Misses' Dress & Unlined Jacket



I love view 2 for a winter holiday party look.  Something about it just screams out “snow princess” to me!



Next, we have this 1937 Pictorial Evening Gown w. Bolero Misses Vintage Dress Pattern



So elegant and timeless.  This pattern is from 1937, but it’s definitely a party look that has been popular for years, even up to today.



Then we have this LOVELY VTG 1970s DRESS Sewing Pattern



I love the combo of the neckline and the cutout back on this one, especially on the long version.  Would look gorgeous made out of a satin!



Here, we have this Vintage 1960's Lucy Style Evening Gown



This one is interesting, as the back skirt part just looks to be a long sash – which can be removed, so you can get two different looks out of the same dress!



Then, we have this Vintage Vtg Vogue Dress Pattern



Maybe something a little more streamlined is your taste?  This 1947 reproduction pattern is extremely elegant.



Finally, we have this LOVELY VTG 1950s DRESS OVERSKIRT & JACKET Sewing Pattern



Here’s another convertible one that you can get two looks out of – the full overskirt is completely removable.  This would be great if you have multiple parties to go to, but don’t want to wear the same thing!



Have a great weekend, everybody!

    Oooh, look at the way that Very Vintage Vogue dress is cut! Wouldn’t that be cool made with velvet for the main parts and color-matched satin for the inset…

      Oooh, I love your thinking, Queen of Fifty Cents! That would be absolutely gorgeous, especially in a deep red or burgundy, maybe even a forest green.

    Oooh! I’ve always wanted a dress with one of those removable overskirts. I love that 50’s one and the 60’s one with the sash as well.
