hello all of you lovely retro sewers! this is my first post & im very excited 🙂
i just finished this dress using the Decades of Style pattern called “1940’s New England Dress” & im pretty pleased with the result!
for this dress, i used a fun printed light-weight cotton fabric in some lovely muted colors & vintage ball buttons i thrifted recently.
i really love the panel details that this pattern has on the bodice & skirt…and guess what?!? there are even POCKETS in the skirt panel! i just love pockets!
overall, im really happy with how this turned out & i got a few compliments while wearing it which made me so proud!
i took a few years away from sewing and im just getting back into the swing of things. now that im sewing again, i realize how much i love and missed it. this site has been very inspirational for me..thank you all for your posts!
(-now with better photos!)
