Late 40s Teal

I’ve been trying really hard to bolster my winter wardrobe (and only sort of failing). This dress is part of that effort.

I used Simplicity 3010 which is from the late 40s. I choose a teal corduroy to make it up in.

Of course, I had to do the view with the pockets! I really do love this dress. The color is great.

Alas, it’s already time to pack this dress away for warmer weather. More photos over on the blog.
