This is a late 30s dress I made from a pattern one of my friends sent me! (See last photo.) I really love how the dress fits and the drape of the material; I’ve worn it several times already (even though I literally just finished it last week! ;). Now, something I have to admit about this project: the fabric (a rayon faille print), while lovely, does get in the way of the design lines. I was a bit too eager to get going on this that I just grabbed the only length I had that was an appropriate weight. While the dress is still cute, I would love to make this in a “calmer” print or solid so the tiny tucks and yoke-lines stand out a bit more. So see: everyone makes mistakes from time to time! lol. Read more about the process in the blog post I wrote about it: http://blog.caseybrowndesigns.com/2010/01/ginger-dress/
