Pleasantly Malformed
« on: January 13, 2013 03:10:31 PM »



This is my newest endevor, because I rock the red lips and look good in natural waisted things. Its a 1942 pattern, and is SUPER easy. Like, it took me maybe three hours? And thats with a toddler.

Go me!

Beautiful dress. I love that type of waistband with the central point. It is so feminine.

Wow - thanks for the inspiration. I'm just learning to sew and also have a toddler (so I know what that's like). You make me think I could do this too!  Smiley

That so doesn't look like a 1940's pattern! And it looks so good on you. You must have a real instinct for what will suit you, to have spotted that from a vintage pattern illustration!
