Lilly Rose

I recently had the opportunity to sew up the lovely Lilly Rose dress from The Tailor’s Apprentice. She’s launched a whole set of 1940s patterns-a day dress, and evening gown, a sailor outfit, a land girl ensemble and even a wedding gown!

It’s a really darling dress and I jumped on the chance to wear this on the warmest day so far this year (even if it wasn’t quite warm enough for such a light dress.)

My favorite parts are the contrast neckline and keyhole in the back! This is a great way to play up your skin color by choosing a contrast color that looks great on you even if your main fabric isn’t the most flattering. I have a full review, more photos and construction details over on the blog.

  • Lovely!

  • The contrast is really fun and adds to the vintage look. I especially like the back view.
