New England Day Dress

Added Mar 29, 2013

Melbourne, Austr...






I took part in the Sew For Victory Sew-A-Long hosted by the fabulous Lucky Lucille where you had to make a garment from the 40’s era.

I’ve never shied away from vintage, so this challenge was right up my alley. This dress is extra special to me also, as it is the first garment that I have made since giving birth my first child Harry.
I’m back!

    I almost bought that pattern last time I ordered from Decades of Style, but I already had five patterns and couldn’t afford the extra postage. Your version is excellent – the fabric suits the cut so well, and I love the woven leather buttons, which are that slightly masculine wartime-practicality touch. And of course Harry is adorable.
