Time to Re-Think that Stash of Dress Patterns!

in 1940s,Skirts

In keeping with my resolution to make more separates for myself this year, here is one of my recent projects.

The pattern is a 1945 reproduction from Eva Dress.  The original pattern is for a fantastic dress, which I have made twice!   It turns out, this dress makes a lovely little skirt (at least I think so).

Time to re-think all of those dress patterns – they really make excellent skirts!  Just add a waistband and you are ready to go!

More pictures and information about the altered construction of my new skirt may be found over at Lilacs & Lace.

Your peplum skirt looks great–interesting idea! (I like the blouse too!)

Absolutely everything you make is truly beautiful. Not in a stalkerish way but I want to be you! Love seeing what you do next; again, always beautiful.
