Happy Friday Readers!
So, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know I adore and appreciate vintage style looks and patterns; so when I came across the Opal Dress, I just had to have it! It came together so beautifully, I thought I’d share a small review with you.
We shot these photos on a really windy and cold day, so it was rather difficult, but we got a few good ones as well as some video footage below: Just press play!
Pattern Description: – The Opal Dress by Vintage Little Lady
Opal vintage pattern is the epitome of the 1950’s fit & flare! This sweet dress is full of vintage delicate details sure to impress! Opal has a classy tailored bodice with a full functional button front. Beautiful bust gathers, a feminine waistband, delicate neckline. Opal features a classic tea length & above the knee length. The last vintage touch to the Opal pattern is a stunning 2 1/2″ deep hem! – cited from website.

Where can I find this pattern? You can find the Opal Dress Girls HERE and Tween HERE. Oh! There’s also a matching doll pattern you can make for your child and her doll, HERE, or the Bundle complete with a bow pattern HERE.
Would you make this pattern again? YES! I do want to do a really vintage style photoshoot to go with that old vintage suitcase I got from goodwill I posted about some time ago and this dress would be perfect.

And that’s it for todays post guys! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend! TGIF!
