Those are the cutest buttons! Love how you did the sleeves!




I too, have fallen in love with this fabric and am searching walmart.com for it!
Can you send me the link for it?
Or the key words you used to find it?
Thanks a bunch!!


Oh, And how many yards for a dress do you recommend?
I havent sewn from scratch much, mostly re-create thrifted finds. :)

Here is the link to the fabric which I eventually hunted down: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Waverly-Inspirations-100-Cotton-44-Wide-Fabric-per-Yard/140173006

How much you will need really depends on the style of dress you are making. Most 1930s and 1940s dresses can be made with 3 yards. This one took 3 1/2 because of the maternity adaptations. A full-skirted 1950s dress will likely need 4 or more yards. But if you get 4 yards, you should be safe for most projects.


I love your style, it is so very classy and classic. I follow you on Ravelry for crochet patterns but have just found your Facebook page that led me to here. I would love to follow this blog but am not sure how. Do I add you as a friend on Facebook?
