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.

Wow, that beautiful teal color is just the thing to give your beautiful old pattern a modern touch. Nicely done.
