in 1940s,Dresses

Here is my latest vintage reproduction dress – this time the pattern came from The Vintage Pattern Lending Library.

I have been saving my red satin rayon specifically for this pattern, and I think they make a lovely pair.

The sleeves and the yoked skirt are my favorite parts of the dress.  This pattern is fabulous!

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