I really love the aesthetic of the '30s, but I needed a WWII dress for this weekend. So, I found a picture of a 1940s pattern I liked (similar to some '30s gowns) and altered it slightly- different collar, buttons, smaller/more pleats. I had the perfect buttons that needed to be used anyway!
Amina calls me Grammie.
This dress is from Butterick 5209, which is a 1947 reprint currently available. You can't tell from the pictures, but there are tiny navy polka dots all over.
pictures of perfection, as you know, make me sick and wicked- Jane Austen

You say you want to stay by my side. Darling your head's not on right.
So I am kind of obsessed with this pattern right now. I bought a table cloth that was about 30inches too long. I figured the linen would work fine for shorts.
