40 Polka Dots

Yay I finished my Sew for Victory dress a little late… but hey better late than never! Now if only black dresses were easier to photograph.

Lucky for me I was inspired from the envelope mostly due to the fact I knew I had this fabric in my stash. It was a thrift store find years ago and I've pulled it out a few time with intentions to use it but it never fit what I was going for.

I think if I ever make the pattern again I will use a lighter color so I won't lose the details like what happened with the black print.

Now off to the next sew along – Mad Men!

    So pretty! It doesn’t look like a period piece, it’s really cool and modern. Those neckline pleats really make it. Great job on your locks as well.

    This is adorable I wish I found a pattern like this to sew I had no idea. I love it, one of the prettiest 40s dress! It’s a modern look dress too with the black and white polka dots!! If you have done any copy cats you can enter my challenge! :)

    This is a lovely dress! The pleats and the little bow at the neckline are so cute. I especially like how you used a fabric similar to the envelope art. Your hair looks very pretty, too. :)
