Right now I’m not making dresses because I need (whatever you mean by that) them, but because some time I have to make something out of all of that fabric. This is an old cotton fabric, probably as old as from the 1940s. I drafted the pattern myself, but it is based on late 1930s/early 1940s fashions and sewing patterns.
