Vintage Pattern – Butterick 9796
Guess what the postman brought me today… another gorgeous vintage pattern! I saw this on Etsy the other week and just had to have it. It was love at first sight!
Opening up this pattern was a really exciting experience. I can’t help but wonder who Louise White is and if she was just as excited about this dress as I am. When I opened the envelope and pulled out the tissue paper, I caught a whiff of her floral perfume, and wondered about what her dress looked like, and where she wore it. It was like being taken back to 1960s New York, just for a split second. A very special experience, and I shall treasure her pattern for many years to come.
