I wanted a very easy-to-wear dress and I was lazy to add a zipper to this firt try on Peony from Colette Patterns. So I went for this piece of knit fabric. I really felt in love with theses large scale flowers…

It’s only tuesday but you’ll be fine. Have a nice day !
I was very excited to make this dress. Its ironic that the 1940s is one of my favorite eras and I haven’t successfully made an authentic forties dress before this one.
I used vintage vouge 2787. I love the S-shape on the front! That was what originally drew me to this pattern. The pattern was straightforward and I didn’t have any real problems, it did however, challenge me with sewing even curved lines. The gathering on the shoulder was modified and I had to pettite-ify the top half of the dress. The dress seems to fit the kind of girl who has a full bust but a small waist and moderate hip.
