Another post! Here is a look at the dress I created to wear to the Mid Atlantic Air Museum‘s enormous air show and WWII reenactment in June. This is an annual event at the museum and one you should not miss!
I call this my “Red Birds Dress.” It was another “limited fabric so cut carefully” projects. Like my recent birthday dress, this fabric came from my mom’s sewing stash. Although it’s cotton she decided it wasn’t suitable for quilting. This fabric had been waiting quietly in the vintage/modern stash for just the right pattern to come along. Because it was just shy of 3 yards and only 32 inches wide, I knew I would be somewhat limited as to what I could do with it. The pattern I used was McCall 5724. I made view B. The dress has pockets!
The buttons, buckle, and fabric for this dress are all vintage and come from the stash. As usual, there are more pictures of this project on my blog.
