This listing is for a beautiful mid century housedress like the one you see in these photos. This beautiful dress will be handmade by me from the Vintage pattern in the 4th photo. This dress can be made using any cotton print and trim combination. I have a lot of vintage buttons too. This listing price is for the labor on this dress only, there will be an additional fabric charge.

I love this color combo of this sample dress for fall. My customer chose a black and blue reproduction cotton from Judie Rothermels Cocheco Mills collection. I paired it with a blue trim. The sample dress in these photos is sold, but I can make one just like it in your exact size and fabric choice.

This funky housedress would look wonderful with tights and boots & a sweater. This style is very flattering, the piping detail in front draws the eye to the center. Please Convo me for fabric and trim options. 3 1/2 yards of fabric are required for this style. Ordering fabric can take up to two weeks, If you are in a hurry to get a new dress, I have lots of pretty fabric options already in my stash. Convo me for fabric photos.

This beautiful housedress has vintage buttons down the front, short sleeves, and cotton piping on the front seams and collar. This cut is very flattering. The seams hug your curves and the piping draws the eye to the center, so it's very slimming. I can make this dress in any size in any color combination using reproduction cotton fabric. This style is very popular and I have sold a bunch of these to etsy customers who write to me and say they get a zillion compliments whenever they wear it.

If you want to purchase this dress, convo me with your size and height, please include bust, waist, and hip measurements and I'll make this exact style dress for you in your choice of fabric and trim.

Here is an approximate size chart, please give me any details about your height and shape.
Size Chart:
4 (XS): Bust - 32", Waist - 24", Hips - 34"

I have one of these dresses in my wardrobe and I wear it all the time and get tons of compliments. It's really comfy and cool on a summer day.

This vintage pattern is a mail order pattern. They were advertised in newspapers and magazines and ladies would write in for the pattern to come in the mail. That sound like fun, I love getting good mail.
