Description

This is such a fun and comfy outfit! The dress’ fabric is a soft drapey rayon and my pattern is a year 1944 DuBarry brand #5840. (DuBarry was a branch of Simplicity patterns, printed for about 15 years and sold only at Woolworth ‘five and dime’ stores.) I didn’t intend for the stripes to go horizontally, but they match well, at least! I enjoy having the handy pockets and added vintage acorn shaped buttons down the front. My hat was bought at a one dollar store and unpicked until I had an open crown, then I a matching ribbon was added around it.
