Summer 1940s Dress 2


It’s great to be back on We Sew Retro again! I haven’t posted on here in months.

I have fallen deeply in love with 1940s styles, and have been sewing up bunches of them! I made this dress last week, and I just love it. The fabric is lightweight and just perfect for summer!! I used Butterick 5846 (a modern pattern that’s renowned for its vintage flair), and replaced the flared skirt with a gathered style.
