It looks lovely! Where did you get the fabric?

I got the fabric as a 4 yard piece on eBay. I don't know if it is out of production or not - I don't remember the name of it.


This is such a lovely, elegant dress. The colour suits you very well


what pattern did you use please, you look amazing :)


Such a beautiful dress! I love the fabric and the simple, yet classically 1930s style. The sleeves are just gorgeous, such a beautiful detail. And, you're not the only one who tends to sew just one colour for a while, all mine recently seem to have been in burgundy!

Hi Kim - the pattern I used was Simplicity 3598, which is a dress and pinafore pattern from 1939 or thereabouts. This is the dress from it.
