I know from hearing from you that I am not the only one who loves what I call a vintage convergence—a vintage ad or a pattern (etc.) that is clearly the same as the vintage item you have in hand.

In this case, I have a homemade wrap housedress that reminds me of a Swirl dress from the 1950s or 60s. It is in fact from the 1970s, which I know because I found its pattern on the sweet Tomato Soup Cake blog, where the writer also talks about Swirl dresses.

Very lovable, Swirl-style wrap dresses! Where I found this dress there are about five more in a variety of great fabrics...I think the original seamstress must have been crazy for this dress. Depending on enthusiasm I may run back and pick up the rest of those dresses. I've kind of going nuts for it myself!

See my previous installments in this now-and-then series by searching vintage convergence on my blog.
