I ended up falling in love with my dress I made for the sew along! I'm so thankful to Rochelle for hosting Sew for Victory because I really would have never made this dress otherwise.
This dress really did feel like a project someone from the 1940s would have done. This project costed me no more than $3! That is including the fabric, pattern, buttons, and zipper. Not bad at all, right? Everything I used was thrifted vintage. The "make do and mend" portion really did come into play a lot because the sleeve cuff pattern pieces were missing so I made them up, which wasn't hard at all.
(I would just like to point out that I was very careful in matching all of my lines and diagonals.)
