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.
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
