It seems so long since I’ve posted here! I temporarily switched gears from vintage attire to historical costuming when I had to sew half a dozen costumes to wear to the Jane Austen Festival last fall. (I have tons of Elizabeth Bennet pictures on the blog!) But once I returned from my costuming trip to England I was able to jump back onto the vintage bandwagon, so to speak, and this is the first dress I sewed after I came back.
I LOVE Hollywood Patterns, and this one from my collection just begged to be made into a burgundy dress. I used a crepe or faille material, and decorated the bodice with chocolate brown ribbon bows. The pattern was super easy to work with, though it *is* a big fitted even for my liking.
The pattern is quite versatile with either straight or puffed sleeves, and a floor length or below the knee skirt. I LOVE the flattering fit, and you just can’t go wrong with a sweetheart neckline and a wide cummerbund inset.
There are many more pictures and a full pattern review on my blog, for those who wish to read more.
Hope you all are having a wonderful winter, and happy sewing!
