When I saw that Rochelle over at Lucky Lucille is hosting Sew for victory! A 40s Sewing Challenge I thought what an opportunity to indulge in this all consuming love of 1940's.
I decided that I will make a dress for this sewalong. I've narrowed it down to a couple of dresses and now I just have to decide which one.
Sense and Sensibility's A 1940s "Swing" Dress. I love wrap styles, they're so flattering.
Butterick 1411, View A; this is another one of my Mother's dresses. Isn't the collar cute?
A reproduction; Vogue V8728. This is the first reproduction pattern I ever bought and I haven't made it yet.
Australian Home Journal pattern #5963 - the green dress. I love the faux collar on this one.
Another Australian Home Journal pattern #5966 - the red one. I like the interesting line on the bodice/midriff and the shirring details.
They're all so nice, it's hard to choose. I think I'm favouring either the Swing dress or the Butterick. Which one would you choose?
