A Purple Floral 40s Shirtwaist

A quick garment post today. I made this cotton shirtwaist from my new favorite 40s shirtwaist pattern. The fabric is a floral in little bunches with hints of green and deep yellow. My sweetheart picked out the print and it's so cute for bumbling around the house when plain but when dressed up with accessories I think I could wear this out and about too. For this wearing, I chose to go with white - a vintage leather belt, vintage collar, and snood from Peachy Keen Vintage. The original pattern was for a side opening but I made some modifications and now it buttons all the way down the front. I was running low on side zippers, but I had plenty of buttons.
