Anyone missing a necktie?

in 1950s,Dresses,Vintage Sewing

Here is my most recent vintage reproduction sewing project.  I have so many patterns in the stash crying out for a little attention, but once I got my paws on this new one, I just couldn’t resist cutting into some fabric.  In my defense, the silk has been in living in a drawer for a few years, so those other patterns will just have to wait their turn!

And if I was not obsessed with finishing off every seam with my rayon seam binding, this dress would have been a super quick and easy project.

More pictures may be found over on my blog, Lilacs & Lace.

I adore sewing and knitting, mostly vintage or vintage-inspired patterns.

I squealed a little over the pictures of the innards on your blog – love the way you finished the seams. It’s the kind of attention to detail that takes a little longer but is endlessly satisfying once complete.

Looks gorgeous! Love your idea for covering zip as well.
