Sew for Victory: The Dress


I was super excited when I saw Rochelle from Lucky Lucille's 1940s inspired sewalong because I had just scored a ton of vintage patterns. This gave me the motivation to sew one of my patterns ASAP! The Simplicity pattern I chose was undated but its very 1940s. Amazingly I didn't have to do many alterations to the pattern! The only adjustment needed was to make the neck wider (many that thing was choking me) and that also meant adjusting my collar to fit.

A happy spring dress for a beautiful spring day! Happy Easter everyone!

Here is my pattern and here is an up close shot of my fabric.

Also travel to the Sew for Victory flikr group to see the other amazing projects!

  1. I am so impressed by your sewing skills! That dress looks amazing! I wish I could do something like this, but I always seem to get into a fight with my sewing machine every time I bring it out. Great job!
