SewStylish Spring Fashion Challenge 2015

La Petite Mode Gowns in 1/3 Scale

1944 Vogue Dinner Gown in bronze silk taffeta and 1944 Vogue Gown in blush peau de soie.

I recently began sewing a series of 1/3 scale models from my vintage patterns.  The models demonstrate how fabric garments made from the patterns will look.  

I gleaned inspiration from Le Théâtre de la Mode.  As well, The House of Dior drew inspiration from the same exhibit when creating Le Petit Théâtre Dior.

My Petite Mode line is based on 1/3 the size of patterns fitting vintage size 18 (36″ bust, 30″ waist, 39″ hip).  

The two designs posted here are the first two I created this spring with flower blooms to boot!
