[personal profile] mandie_rw , [personal profile] miss_philomena , [Unknown LJ tag] and I are going to the WWII airshow in Reading, PA this June (as in like two weeks better get moving here) and I've outgrown all my 40s wardrobe.

When I was at my mom's for easter she offered me a dress length of what feels like rayon (burn test was positive for either rayon or cotton I can't tell flame colors apart that well) which is idea for the no doubt 100 degree weather.

So I picked up three vintage patterns. Help me chose which!  


Option 1:




Pro of this one is it looks simple. Cons involve will it make me look like a linebacker in a dirndle.

Option 2:



Pros of this one: I think the shirring would be flattering, but would the skirt look like a loin cloth? cons: more complicated. aka sleeves.

Option 3



Pros: less gathering in the skirt. cons:  I like the construction standards of vogue better. 



I  did actually buy all three as they were all on sale. So vote and help a girl out!  What's your opinion?

they are all pretty.

I think the first one would be better in a tinier print
the 2nd in a slinky chiffon.

I think the 3rd one on the right
would look great with the flowers you have chosen.
and a bit of lace for the collar.
