I got myself some amazing old pattern magazines. The pattern that inspired this dress is from a magazine in Germany during the war years – from 1942. I was very intrigued by those sleeves. You should see the funky pattern pieces! I was going to do everything original, but the skirt had a really strange shape (they had to be very economical with their material!) and I ended up changing it. Also the waistband and belt loops are from me, hence the project name. I got a little off my precision path – because I started improvising, but all in all I am happy with it. You could wear a belt with it of course, but I think it works just as well without.
