We are pleased to offer vintage style dresses and sewing patterns inspired by classic cinema! Focusing on fashions from the 1930s-1950s, our designs are created to bring a little bit of a bygone era into the twenty-first century. Inspired by “White Christmas” and the “Sound of Music”, these dresses are perfect for theatrical productions and formal occasions alike.

With hand-sewn details and high quality fabrics, our dresses are made individually in the U.S.A. to create beautiful gowns which will last for years to come. These garments capture the charm and femininity of a time when sumptuous dresses were preserved with care and carefully stored on padded satin hangers until an invitation arrived for the next dance or dinner party…

Our vintage sewing patterns are also printed locally in the U.S.A. and are designed for intermediate sewers to recreate fashions inspired by the Sound of Music costumes worn in the “last golden days of the 30s”. It has been a joy to ship these patterns around the world over the last 7 years since I first founded this business, and to watch experienced sewers and amateurs alike create their own “Von Trapp” inspired frocks using our Edelweiss Patterns designs.

I’ve also had the opportunity to recreate many dresses not shown here on my main site, so for more styles I’ve sewn please visit my blog page. There you’ll find costumes inspired by Jane Austen films, First Ladies’ fashions, classic 1950s movies, and much more.

Have a marvelous day!
