The skirt comes from the late 30’s, the bodice from WW2, yet somehow this dress reminds me of the teens, especially with my daughter’s straw boater. Remember I added extra room to eat? This dress turned out rather blousy, but in a good summery way.
Down to business. Darted sleeve cap, a sleeve pattern I know I love from Zemelda? Or risk more stripey goodness with Wearing History’s gathered bias sleeves? Or sleeveless? I need to set this aside to think while I finish off other projects, I’ll sleeve her up tomorrow.
I don’t know if two postings in a day violates an unwritten blogging rule. My husband and daughter left ahead of me for our holiday destination which means I have ample time to sew and clean and generally get the house in order for the New Year. Leaves plenty of blogging time, too.
