DuBarry 2472B from 1940

in 1940s

I just finished up this dress to wear to the County Fair last week!  I made it from a rayon/linen blend with fabric colors inspired by the 1939 World’s Fair.  More about this project on my blog here.

I love historical and vintage fashion and love creating clothing from the past. When I'm not sewing for myself I love to be creative in other ways, watch old movies, and spend time with my husband our two kitties.
