1940’s Sew for Victory Dress

April 3, 2013

Hello and today I am showing my first dress I have ever made in this style. This was a challenge for me, I learnt a lot about dress making and many some new contacts.  I chose this shirt style dress unbeknown to me a collar is not that easy especially for a beginner but here it is and it turned out well.

Here is a close up of the darts, there were a few all around. The buttons I got from Etsy, they were new old stock so I was pleased to find them. This took me just over a week but that was sewing everyday. I am very pleased how this turned out and fits.

I am now setting myself my own challenge to make a full 40’s wardrobe from dresses, blouses, skirts to suits……Happy Crafting!

 

 

 

    1. Thank you, I am pleased with it. Butterick 5846, when I looked at the pattern, I thought no way is that a reproduction but then I found out it was.
