I’m so loving everyone’s Sew for Victory dresses! The fourties are one of my favorite decades!

I chose to make a white shirtwaist dress from Simplicity 3517 from 1940 for this challenge. White’s not really the most practical color but it’s great for mixing and matching different colored accessories!

I adore fashions from 1939/1940. Now if only I could find a smashing hat like on the blonde I’d be all set!

As always, there’s more photos and construction details on my blog if you’d like to know more.

It doesn’t get much more timeless and classic that a white shirtwaist. Gorgeous work. :-D
