1940's Day dress

The Art Deco Society is having their membership appreciation party on January 24th in Alameda at the Elks Lodge.  I have several garments in my closet but....yes, a new one is on the cutting table.  I am using the Decade of Style pattern, #4007 1940s New England Dress.  The fabric is a charcoal grey closely woven linen-like fabric with a chalk white grid pattern.  I have some vintage buttons as well - part of the collection of many bits and pieces I use to detail even modern clothes to make them interesting.  

I have used Decade of Style patterns before with mixed success but I find that may be more my fault in plowing ahead and not making mock-ups, etc. The last garment, referred to in my previous post, came out perfect.   In any case, I have the fabric cut and I just need to get the machines ready to rock and roll and have at it.  

Here is the link to Decades of Style:

More to come.
