My first vintage pattern

I bought my very first vintage pattern off ebay this week, Maudella 4894.

I’m tempted to use Joan Holloway as my inspiration and make it in a bright blue fabric like this:

I can’t wait to make it!

Serious dress envy

I just watched the last episode of the BBC’s The Hour, and all I could think of was how much I wanted to sew a wiggle dress like the ones Romola Garai wears in it. I found a couple of vintage patterns online which I think are quite suitable – Vogue 7951 and Butterick 7982. I’m going to have to keep an eye out on ebay for these two.

Anyone else found any similar vintage patterns?
