      The 14 patterns are the vintage dresses–click on the photo to go to the shop selling the pattern. The ‘now’ dresses are modern versions of each idea, which don’t have patterns but are meant as inspiration, working off the vintage pattern. There are 24 dresses, but only 14 patterns. Hope that clears things up!
