This refined Inspired by Project Runway® dress pattern 1913 adds updated button and belt details to its 1966 counterpart.
The bodice side panels on Inspired by Project Runway dress pattern 2282 are as flattering as our 1960's version; angled seam lines and a posh faux fur collar make this a 2012 standout.
The floaty, feminine silhouette of Inspired by Project Runway dress pattern 2444 is just as pretty as the garden party dress from the 1964 Simplicity® pattern; a bold floral print with black accents gives it an edge perfect for today.
