A pattern mash up, 50 plus 70s equals 40s

Perhaps the pièce de résistance that a woman might have in the 50s, that rather special pattern in the stash of work and household clothes. Advance 6190 was a delight to work with! And I am so pleased with the results.

I was very short on fabric for this project, but the fabric, a wool blend crepe, given to me by a friend, was perfect, so perfect, I had to use it, so I teamed the 50s bodice up with a simple skirt from a 70s pattern, and voila!

I now have a very 40s looking dress, win!

I have more photos and making details over on my blog.

I hope your sewing projects are going well as we approach the end of the year.

Happy sewing, Angela x

  1. Your dress is absolutely gorgeous and I love the slimmer skirt just the same if not better than the original full skirt! The seams finished with lace are quite lovely. Beautiful, beautiful dress!
