Another 40s summer dress! This one is McCall 3806 in an amazing silk georgette print by Milly, with a few vintage (supposedly – one never really knows!) glass buttons.
Fabric was a b*tch to sew but despite the somewhat wonky hem I’m happy with the result.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
