A pleated 1940s dress from a vintage pattern which nearly killed me to make. Read all about the pain on my blog: http://theoldfashionedway.blogspot.com/.
Made from a kind of lighweight rayon and some crepe de chine for the waistband. Its also lined with some kind of cotton blend.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
