Yet another Sew for Victory Dress

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.
