I used a New Look pattern from the late 40's:
And THIS repro feedsack print cotton from Reproductionfabrics.com.
I am so happy with the fabric. It is from Windham Fabrics' "Feedsack V" collection, excellent quality cotton and very reasonably priced at reproductionfabrics.com!
I am also very happy with the finished product, and so is Jennifer. The dress is just darling! I love the back kick pleat, the faux button look (it has a side zipper) and the contrasting scallops on the upper bodice. It's just darling!
Next I am going to make a dress for my sister Skylar. She also chose a Feedsack V print (this one), but we are going to use a bohemian-style sundress pattern from the 70's. Hooray for sundresses!
