Woot for another successful sew along!
My project for the Fall for Cotton sew along was this great gray corduroy skirt c. 1940. I made it to go with this great rayon printed blouse. Both are made from DuBarry 5909.
I’m very happy with these two separates. I’m sure they’ll get loads of wear.

I’m so loving everyone’s Sew for Victory dresses! The fourties are one of my favorite decades!
I chose to make a white shirtwaist dress from Simplicity 3517 from 1940 for this challenge. White’s not really the most practical color but it’s great for mixing and matching different colored accessories!
I adore fashions from 1939/1940. Now if only I could find a smashing hat like on the blonde I’d be all set!
As always, there’s more photos and construction details on my blog if you’d like to know more.
How do fellow vintage sewers and crafters, i thought it was time to stop stalking the vintage sewing blogs and actually participate a bit, in a hope that it will make me continue to tackle my ever growing sewing project pile. My sewing skill is beginner/shitty intermediate and have completed a few projects but patterns can make me feel a tad dyslexic. Im certifiably insane about everything 1940′s and 50′s and am hoping to create a wardrobe around these impecible eras. enough jabbering, here is a snood i made last year with the help of a you tube video :p
Thank you to everyone on wesewretro for inspiring me and making it look so bloody easy that ive given it a go.xoxox
