Sew For Victory 1.5

A long time ago (just over one year ago actually) I signed up for Rochelle’s Sew For Victory Sewalong.  I chose to make not one, but two dresses. Needless to say, only one got made in time and the second was put on hold…until about a month ago.  Here she is in all her glory:  a little Forties dress in a mustard yellow and teal on white seersucker. Between the pockets and the print, she’s definitely one of my favourite makes!



Here’s a close up of the pattern and the fabric.  I have so many ideas for alternate versions of this dress, it was just that much fun to make.  I might even include the bow next time!

There’s a bit more info. about this make on my blog along with this year’s Sew For Victory 2.0 project, which I will post here as soon as it’s done which will hopefully be soon…the deadline is tomorrow and I haven’t even started! Eeek!
