The Art of Darkness

Bat PatternJust in time for the holidays, here’s a site to spend a whole bunch of money! Woo-hoo!

EvaDress specializes in creating reproductions of patterns dating from the 1860s through the 1950s, including several interesting designs that I haven’t seen on other vintage pattern sites (the single caveat being the same one I have about most pattern vendors, in that men and children tend to be underrepresented). The prices are quite reasonable for repro patterns, and the styles are very goth-friendly: Of particular interest, obviously, is the Bat Dress dating from the 1880s. I’ve seen the drawing elsewhere and have always been struck by how adorably vintage it looked. (There are a couple more photos of the reproduction here.)

The site also has a companion blog with loads of photos and build notes, which are either an excellent source of inspiration or (if you’re like me) a super-fast way to feel really inadequate about your sewing skills.

There’s some gorgeous, really unique designs–go take a look!
