Fabric: Printed floral polycotton, plain white polycotton
Pattern: Lisette 2246 - modified to create the look of 1930's beach dress
Year: Early 30's as my waistling is still slightly dropped a vesitige of the 1920's styles
Notions: wood flower buttons, red embroidery floss, white thread.
How historically accurate is it? I've tried to recreate the right 'look' copying a pattern cover from the 1930's but the fabric choice is less accurate so I'd say its 50/50. lol!
Hours to complete: Took me a week or thereabouts sewing on and off. All sewn by hand.
First worn: 14th April
