In my flat patterning class my classmate, Elisabeth, and I are creating patterns for these two lovely 1940s dresses. I'm creating the above dress to fit Elisabeth, and she's creating the dress below to fit me. On Tuesday we'll have a fitting to see how well we did!
I love the above dress - isn't it lovely? I'd love to one day make a 1940s dress out of some blue-green silk that I have in my stash. Vince purchased a 1940s suit several years ago, but we've never gotten to dress up and go out together in 1940s attire.
