This dress is so beautiful with an ideal Christmas themed design. I hope that you and your family missed the awful weather in the USA that we saw on our news bulletins.

What pattern did you use?

Kristen Stoltzfus Clay

Hi Glenna,
I used a vintage pattern in my collection, numbered Butterick 3819.

Declan Kelly

Out of curiosity, is this a 1940s wartime style or a 1940s peacetime style? Be interesting to see how world events affected the design.

Hi Declan,
My guess from the pattern illustrations is that it's from 1946, right after the war, before the fabric rationing was lifted, but a new silhouette starting to appear.
