McCall's M4769 and Vintage Pattern Finds

Making MUCH better progress on M4769! YAY!! I am hoping to finish it tonight! :) Here's where it stands now!



I can't decide if I want to add the collar or not... I want to know how to so those collars so I may go ahead anyway. If I don't like it I can always take it off!! That's one of the great things about sewing your own clothing! You can MAKE it how you WANT it!!! It's your own creation even if you are using a pattern!

I think the dress is definitely going to have a 1930's/1940's type feel to it. And I now find myself looking at modern patterns and thinking how I might be able to change them here and there to make look more vintage. LOL

Speaking of vintage and patterns... Have you seen this site???? OMGOSH!!! They have TONS of actual vintage patterns, not the re-releases but the actual vintage patterns!!
