1930s day dress…

I made a lovely 30s day dress, and matching headpiece, last week.


I self drafted the dress pattern using my basic dress block, and just worked out the headpiece as I went along.

The coloured fabric is vintage rayon from Etsy, with the contrasting black rayon from my fave fabric store.

I really love the dress, it is really comfortable and drapes well, with great movement in the flounces.

And, aside from the discomfort of wearing a headband, I also love the headpiece…

I have applied to study a certificate in millinery next year, which I think is the perfect compliment to my fashion course.

There is more info at my blog if you’re interested :-)
