I just finished my working muslin for my 1948 Dress. Completed the whole thing in about an hour?This pattern was ridiculously easy (Vogue Vintage 2787) I really just couldn’t believe it. I would really like to try this pattern again but in olive green (can you imagine?!). For my muslin I used a scrap of really cheap stretchy, velvety fabric I found at a charity shop. I would definitely like to try it in a more high quality fabric next.
The pattern is actually supposed to be much longer, but I was very limited on fabric so I shortened the skirt.
While I’m not overwhelmingly happy about this first try it is still very wearable. I may wear it out for a burlesque show that is coming up :)
