RAF dress – Decades of style #4002 – 1944 Housedress

I’ve just completed my third garment this year – I’m actually considering joining the Sew Weekly workaholics!
This is a simple housedress I have made before, but this time I decided to use some very fun aeroplane fabric and use extra buttons down the front, so it’ll be more suitable as an outside dress!
There’s a full review here from the last time I made this dress. I don’t have much more to say about it – it’s very simple although the collar area is a bit fiddly. It’s highly recommended as a pattern anyway, and very flattering. Top marks from me!
