1938 Advance pattern

I began this dress two years ago from a 1938 Advance pattern. Other projects soon took precedence, and this one was left half-finished for many months. I finally got back to it, and am glad I did. Used cotton lawn I thought was design appropriate for the era, and vintage buttons that reflect the flower pattern. The collars and cuffs are organza white silk, and the soutache is black silk cord.
