The Georgia Vintage Dress

I am really excited to be a part of The Cottage Mama's dress pattern blog tour today!  I got to sew up this sweet little Georgia Vintage Dress for the tour.



I have sewn dresses from The Cottage Mama before (the Miss Matilda and the Daphne Wrap Dress) and they are all awesome, but I think this is my favorite.  All of Lindsay's patterns are well written and easy to follow, not to mention adorable.  Doesn't E look like a little doll in this dress?





I love this vintage look of this dress with the sweet little collar.  And the flutter sleeves, oh man, I love these flutter sleeves!  The pattern calls for piping along the bib, but I switched it out for these tiny little ruffles, so girly.  I picked up this fabric at Joann's, the colors are a bit more muted than I normally go for, but I think they work perfect for this dress.




It closes in the back with buttons and ties with a big bow.  (I think I need a lesson in tying dress bows, is there a trick to it?  I will be youtubing that later)


You can find all of The Cottage Mama's patterns HERE I really like that all her dress patterns are modest and girly, so many patterns out there are not.  




All of The Cottage Mama patterns come in PDF and for those who prefer paper patterns, she has those too.  The paper patterns are printed in full color with full size pattern pieces, I haven't seen them in person but they look awesome in her photos.   She is also coming out with a new book soon, 'Sew Classic Clothes for Girls: 20 Dresses, Outfits, and Accessories from The Cottage Mama'.  It will be out October 7th so look for that too, I know I will be.




Did you notice that E is standing on her own in these photos?  That's new!  I was pretty excited to have her standing to model a dress, it is so much easier to show off the dress when your model can stand.  AND she actually took her first steps while I was taking these photos!  I was really wishing my camera had a video option, but at least I have pictures to remember it by.  This girl is growing way too fast!

  8. The 70s witnessed an increase in the export of traditional materials outside the country as well as within. Hence, international fashion arrived in India much before the MTV culture with the bold colors, flower prints and bell-bottoms. Synthetics turned trendy and the disco culture affected the fashion scenario.
