1940’s Chestnut Brown Dress with Jacket

brown 1940's dress

Yeah…this one turned out wonderful!  🙂

 I am soooo in love with the color, the softness of the fabric, and the delicate way it hangs off the dress form!

I knew that I wanted to create a 1940’s dress for this month’s sewing post, however I wasn’t sure what to do.  I decided to create a simple dress but add in a few extra touches with the lace collar and small lace details on the sleeve.  I also used my 1930’s block pattern to create the simple jacket.

Here is the pattern that I created for the dress:

While I did do some minor tweaking to the waist line, in addition to a gather, I was very pleased with the final product!

Here are a few pictures!



I just now realized that the one sleeve is all wonky in this picture….sigh!!




Happy end of November everyone!

See you all in December!!!  I can’t wait! 🙂
