Chicago, Illinoi...






This is the 40’s Swing Dress from Sense & Sensibility patterns. I made it with Casey (via Casey’s Elegant Musings) and the sew-along group.

I made my dress in silk with bemberg lining. Check out more details and images on my blog:

    I have a definite obsession with 1940’s dresses. Details and cut abound. You are really cute in your dress!
