Vintage 1940's Red Dress

I made this dress for a 1940’s WWII ball in Boulder Colorado. It started out as a replica of a vintage pattern I bought from Etsy but I ended up altering as I decided it didn’t suit me after all! Find out how I made the dress and what changed on my blog

Material Notes

Polyester crepe.

    I think you were quite right – the new neck suits you better than the original design. Congratulations.
