Scans from 1936 Vogue Pattern Book.

First, I need to find these patterns, then I need to find some time, or someone, to sew these dresses for me.

I love the lacing detail on the skirt on the right below -

Of course, I need some summer clothes for the Shore.

You know that I love the nautical look, below.

I love the neck details on both of these dresses - closer view below.

and a few more pretties -

I have Kenzo's Butterick 4259 that has an outfit similar to the beach picture. I'm hoping to make it this summer and am really looking forward to it. I love these styles.

I love the 1930s styles! It's one of the reasons I enjoyed watching the Dorothy L. Sayers mysteries - to see the costuming! Fun post. :-)

I just found your blog! (I just read The Secret Lives of Dresses and found your sites!) I love the swimsuit!! I would so wear that! I am not a seamstress by ANY means, but would love to learn. I always told my family that I was born in the wrong time period for music and clothing!
