First of all today, I wanted to share this lovely rendition of a dress made from a Butterick pattern, circa 1939:
When I saw it, it reminded me of this pattern Lori had when we were in high school. (I know the two aren't really all that similar , but what can I say? It just brought to mind this other dress) Lori found the pattern when she was moving, and she let me borrow it to use it in this post.
I don't remember if she ever even made a dress with the pattern, but it is VERY similar in style to the dress I am wearing in this photo, below. Lori graduated the same year as my boyfriend, and the dress wasn't mine, it belonged to my friend Debbie. You may or may not remember I wrote about her having borrowed one of my Gunne Sax dresses back in this post.
I wish it was a better photo, the dress fabric was a lightweight knit in yellow with little flowers, and I loved it. I remember being so happy that Debbie let me wear it that night!
Just a nice little memory.
