The 40's Dress!
Not only is this part of the "Great Vintage Sew-a-Long" it also keeps with my Spring Palette. I promise I will do a detailed construction post but this has been going on so long I just HAVE to get the photos up here now. Click to make them bigger!
Some of the modifications to the original pattern include piping, and a more of a flutter sleeve. I also whacked off six inches of length. I used a scalloped machine stitch to finish off the sleeves. My original inspiration had been from the below dress from the Ralph Lauren 2010 Spring Collection.
