I ordered recently a vintage pattern (yes, another one…). But when I saw it I couldn't resist, and as I still didn't have a 1940s peplum dress pattern in my collection, it was really necessary to make this purchase.
So today it arrived. I often try to look my "new" patterns up in the internet to see how many of them same design are out there, or if it's a rarity.
I was quite surprised when I found the same pattern again from an Etsy shop (the item had already sold earlier). Same design. Same number. Same size. But - different cover illustration. It happens sometimes that the designs on the pattern envelopes differ in colour, but I have never seen such a case before. They are like sisters.
I am wondering why there is a different issue of the pattern. The women's hairstyle on my pattern look rather like late 1940s or early 1950s, while the other ones look like earlier 1940s. It might be the pattern was issued a second time, a little bit later, and the illustration was slightly adjusted to changed hair fashion?
However, I am very excited to make this dress. I wonder if a peplum will look unflattering on me or not.
