    Oh my, this is beautiful! Great job! I want one!

    I wish I could get my hands on some 1930s patterns, I only ever seem to find 60s and 70s ones…

      Thanks. It’s getting harder to find 1930’s patterns. For me anyway. But I have an obsession and probably have more than I will ever be able to use.

    I have bunch of 1930’s patterns that will need serious re-sizing. You have inspired me to keep them on the to do list with my op shop fabrics. This looks fantastic and suits you so well!

      Thanks. Can’t wait to see what you make. The 1930’s is my favorite era for clothing and hats.

    I absolutely LOVE this dress (and the pattern). I just got a 1930’s pattern of Ebay and I can’t wait to get my fabric so I can start it.

    This is gorgeous!!!! I bought a deadstock 1930s dress for myself on eBay, and yours looks just as authentic. :)
