Anywho, I'm working on a 1930s Holiday Dress, and thought it'd be fun to take a gander at some lovely 1930s outfits. I am using the Decades of Style "Button Dress" pattern I bought at Costume College. I haven't made the pattern before, but so-far-so-good, although I have taken it in considerably at the side-seams. Here is my concept sketch-up:
My plaid is much larger than I've drawn it here. I've used a really lightweight cotton for the sleeves, and have been kicking around the idea of gathering them onto a band, to turn them into little puff sleeves instead of butterfly sleeves (just my style preference). I will post pictures of the finished item later.
For now, here are some other 1930s dresses...
