I've found lots of dresses from the 1933 fall and spring Sears Catalogues that look very similar to the EvaDress pattern. I absolutely adore the criss-cross and button detail that a lot of these have.
This page you may recognize from the Everyday Fashions of the 1930s. I love all these dresses but the middle left image has a similar buttoned scarf detail to the Butterick (EvaDress) pattern I am using:
Here's another one (upper left corner), this time in silk flat crepe:
Here's another pair of beautiful dresses! I'm liking the one-sided scarf detail as well:
Another one with the buttoned scarf, but this time with a smaller scarf:
Ohhhh...I love when they have pages in color! Check out the dress in the middle on the bottom. I love the collar in white!
Which are your favorites?
