1950′s Dress

I decided to go the other direction this time and have a more fitted Wiggle Dress. This again is made of 100% cotton and has a V neck front and back!

The pattern is New Style Mail Order 3118. I was the first to open and use it, so very exciting to unfold a pattern from that time knowing it was folded by some factory worker and never touched until now. I am glad to have put it to good use. 


I love the dress and will try some others in different fabrics. More details and thoughts on this dress at http://lilliansesembles.blogspot.com

Hello, I have been sewing, knitting and crocheting for years and now am in the process of building a 1940's wardrobe for myself. Love that era.
