Tea at Two

January 1, 2015

I squeezed one last project in before 2014 came to a close. Recently, I’ve been inspired by 1930s fashions so this dress is the next step on my journey to a 1930s wardrobe.

The pattern I used is Wearing History’s Tea at Two dress. Original 1930s sewing patterns can be expensive and hard to find so I love reproduction patterns! Plus this one was multi-sized which is always a bonus.

I found an adorable set of white vintage buttons on etsy that were just perfect for this outfit! I love using vintage notions in my sewing projects because the add that extra touch of authenticity to an outfit.

It’s been unusually warm in my new home state, Florida, so I did get a chance to wear this dress recently even though it feels quite spring inspired to me. I’m sure it will get loads more wear when the weather warms back up for good in the spring.
