1945 Advance 3929

March 14, 2010

Hello everyone! I have just finished making this lovely simple dress from 1945:

I had originally intended to make View 1, the shirtdress, and then View 2, with the bow, but ended up making View 3 to show off this lovely fabric more:

And here is my dress!

I had some fitting issues (i.e., grading it down by quite a bit), but apart from that, it was simple and rather quick to sew. I definitely like the simplicity of the style, as I will be able to dress it up or down.

Please visit me at my blog if you would like to see more pictures and more of the tale of this dress!
