This pattern from Butterick is almost exactly like one of the Betty Page dresses from modcloth. All that is missing is the keyhole.
I could probably make a keyhole with not much difficulty. The big problem again is finding fabric that I like and figuring out if I want to spend the time making a dress or just buy it.
This dress is McCalls 6953 and has many similar lines to the dresses I’ve been interested in. The only trouble is I would have to find fabric for this dress
Everyday Accolades Dress in Cobalt from Modcloth.
I also like this dress in black. I really love the cowl neck. Cowl necks have been a bit of an obsession right now. This might be a good dress for the wedding and it looks like it could also be a work dress.
Beyond Compare Dress
Beyond Compare Dress from Modcloth.
This dress is one of many in my possible wedding guest dress list. I like that it’s a pretty color. The length is nice, but I do like wearing necklaces and the heavily beaded neckline doesn’t really call for additional decoration.
Plum Ruffle dress from The Pyramid Collection.
I love the color and the sleeve ruffles are super cute. I just don’t think this dress is right for me.
Lettuce Edged Dress from The Pyramid collection.
This is a very simple dress, but I really like the hem.
With Only a Wink Dress on Modcloth
This is another Betty Page dress. I love the lattice work on this dress. I don’t know if this dress would be a good work dress, maybe on days when there are private events.
I saw on Modcolth that a few of the dresses come from Closet in the UK so I had to go looking. This dress is supper cute.
Gaite Tiered Dress from The Pyramid Collection.
Chrocet Lace Dress from Dress barn.
I have seen a theme in my dress selections, either it’s purple or black, and it may or may not have lace….
Front Keyhole Skater Dress from Torrid.com
I do like a good keyhole, but do I really want to do a LBD for the wedding? Such a tough decision.
The Story of Citrus Dress from Modcloth
This dress is very cute, but of course sold out in my size. Grrr Arggg!
