Now and then I like to look at different clothing websites for inspiration and ideas. Gertie, of Gertie’s blog for better sewing was recently inspired by a dress from Bettie Page Clothing, so I had to go check them out. Bettie Page Clothing says they are retro and vintage styled clothing for the modern woman. This post is photo heavy, but these are some of the dresses that I found inspiring. If I could, I would just buy them all!!

Alika circle dress, worked with this delightful lattice work around the neckline. It comes in many colors.
