This is a SUPER cute dress! It looks so comfy, so pretty, and is just a perfect everyday '30s style. Absolutely lovely! The fabric is gorgeous as are those awesome sleeve tabs! :D


Again I am awed by your talent, lovely dress too, reminds me of earlier days, my mom never wore anything but a dress.
By the way, we miss seeing you ! Carol


Just lovely! Green is a favorite color of mine. Love the collar and sleeve tabs on it. My goodness you must have many closets to store all your pretty dresses! Would you mind telling me which line that fabric is? Very pretty print!
Happy summer-

Irene, the fabric is from the Fall Frolic line by Kaye England for Wilmington. It's actually a 1930s repro fabric (which I didn't know when I got it, so that's fun!) and the name of this particular print is Lattice in seafoam. After looking up that line now I would LOVE to have more of those prints and am so glad I scored this one!


So cute!! And great pics too.


Love this! Are you able to share which pattern you used?

Hi Angie,
It was a vintage Companion-Butterick pattern number 8355 from the 1930s.
