Description

A vintage cranberry red dress made with a sweetheart neckline, ribbon bows, and a wide “v” cummerbund panel. Puffed sleeves and ruching finish off the look, and the whole design is very “circa 1944”. I used a vintage pattern from the ’40s for this design, and the hat is an original 1940s piece which was purchased in London. More pictures and a full pattern review on my blog

    OH so gorgeous! Why oh why, do people not dress like this anymore!

    I hope you wear this out on Valentines, complete with the birdcage. It is so classy and pretty. Just eye catching!
