40's style dress
Added Jan 11, 2010
From BOW March 2009, pattern 116B. This pattern is for petite women, which I’m certainly not and I had to resize the bodice for someone with broader shoulders and a longer back. This was the first time I sewed an invisible zipper and I couldn’t make the back yoke seams match up.
Lightweight satin twill fabric by Australian designer Alannah Hill. Purchased 2 years ago from the Dangerfield Clearance Outlet in Fitzroy for $6/metre (I got the last 4 metres left on the bolt). Bemsilk underlining.
