Back From Japan Dress

I love WWII 1940s era sewing patterns. They had very little waste and used little seam allowance due to the fabric ration. Here were my picks of patterns from Wearing History’s etsy shop and my fabric from Sew to Speak another indie sewing shop here in Ohio. The fabric said it was from Japan. Sorry I do not remember the designer.\n\nTracy McElfresh\n\nAs you can see my fabric had 3 different prints that I had to engineer into a dress. I went with the top pattern. I had a picture of the layout I used but I can’t find in my 2 million photos.\n\n303034_10200096291911120_1012735153_n\n\nI had to cut the sleeves on the crossgrain to get then to fit and seam the front center together to make it all work. This dress sold in my easy shop as soon as I made it. It’s one of my favorites.\n\nTracy McELfresh\n\nTracy McElfreshTracy McElfresh\n\nPhotos are by Sharon Caraway and the lovely model is Leslie Ruby Randall\n\n \n\n
