Description

A week before the Fall Bombers Moon Ball, put on by the Minnesota Wing of the Commemorative Air Force I decided that I wanted to make a dress for the event. This is Butterick 5281, which comes from 1946, so it was very period appropriate. I used a lovely floral rayon for the dress, and lined it in hot pink silk.

      It really was a fun event, I hope to make it an annual thing (with a new dress each year!) There were quite a few WWII planes on display, which really made for some great photos.

      Thank you Irina, I did feel very 40s. My family says I look just like my grandma looked during that time :)
