Hello fellow sewists! I recently finished this dress and the sudden drop in temperature here in the bay area means I should get some use out of it soon. I was inspired by this post by Jill of Tea With the Vintage Baroness.
The pattern is Screen Star Pattern 865 from the New York Pattern Company and the envelope features actress Helen Mack
The main fabric is a heavy rayon crepe purchased at Britex fabrics. Its difficult to find rayon crepes that are really heavy so when I saw this one I didn’t hesitate. The plaid collar, cuffs and mock pockets are made with a vintage feedsack I bought at the Alameda Flea Market.
