Long-time readers will remember my deal with Kathryn- she takes my pictures, does my web design, pushes me to the next level, is my biggest cheerleader, and encourages me to dream big.
In return, I make her some dresses. ;-)
So without further ado, here is a dress I made for her last fall!
The bodice of this dress is Simplicity 1587 and the skirt is from a original 1940s pattern. I just love the neckline detailing on this dress!
The back keyhole opening closes with a button, while the dress also features a side zipper.
This drapey rayon flows beautifully and according to Kathryn- is great fun to dance in. :-)
Ruching detail on the sleeve.
As I've mentioned before, I'm not a big 1940s fan, but this pattern has definitely tempted me! I will be making this next season! (never mind the fact that I've said that for the last 3 seasons.... I really mean it this time! ;-P)
