My 1930's dress

This dress wasn’t easy… I made it using a pattern from 1933. The bias cut striped fabric was a lot of trouble to work with but now the dress is finished.

    Congrats! Yes, bias is always a challenge in a slippery fabric, let alone one with stripes! You did a fantastic job! Love the insert it really draws your eye across the diagonal. Beautiful creation.
