Vintage Finds: March 14, 2010
Apparently, I've gone black and white polka dot crazy! Without even realizing it, I picked up three patterns with almost the identical dress on the cover. I paid $15 for all of them (from two different vendors at the Alameda Antique Fair) so that makes it all okay. My favorite of the bunch is the 1960s parties dress on the top right. That's a neckline I don't have represented in any of my existing patterns.
After the antique show, we headed up to visit with my in-laws in Petaluma. While there my mother-in-law gave me some fabric that was hers from the 1980s and some lace that belonged to her grandmother! I'm no doubt going to save some of the lace for my Gatsby dress for this year.
