1940s Jewel Tones

September 18, 2012

I’ve recently discovered that I love late 30s/early 40s fashions and I’ve been working on sewing up some vintage patterns from this period.

I sewed this dress up in some lovely blue purple rayon I scored in the LA garment district this summer.

The shape is so elegant!

I sewed up view 2 on the right. Now I need a jaunty little hat like the model is wearing!

And I adore the pockets! Best feature of this dress! More photos and construction details can be found on my blog.
