1  Retro 40s dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by phunkymama on: May 15, 2006 06:12:13 AM
I stitched this up from a pattern by Sense and Sensibility.  Here's the pattern: Swing Dress

It was a project for DH's grandparents' 60th wedding anniversary party.  We all got done up in period dress.  DH found a WWII Marine's uniform on Ebay, other men were able to round up stuff from the local VFW.  We did a vow renewal, and my daughter had a fancy flower girl dress made by MIL.


It was a bit picky, as it's made with "retro" techniques as well.  Lots of pinning and topstitching, rather than flat out sewing the seam.  I have to say, I'm not really impressed with how it made up.  Maybe the fabric was too busy, and it didn't show the detail as well.  I think I could have really made it stand out in a more subdued print and piping at the detail areas.

At any rate, here it is:



And a family pic, DS was being a butt and wouldn't get in the picture:
