Unprinted mail order 351

June 30, 2011

I don’t know the date or the brand of this one–I can only say that it’s a mail order pattern. My best guess is 30s or 40s. And I have to say that the results are the most un-sailor sailor dress I’ve ever seen! The t-yoke was what initially caught my attention. it’s not something that you see often.

I wasn’t sure about this dress when I got it put together.  I hung it up overnight before dealing with the buttons and buttonholes.  It was only after sewing the buttons on and tying the sash that I decided that maybe I didn’t hate it after all!  More on my blog
