1940 Dress in Swiss Dot


This was a fun one to make and one that you have already seen peeks at before way, way back here. And this a pattern that you have already seen too. I showed you the long-sleeved version a way back made up in a linen. For this version, I wanted mine sheer just like in the pattern illustration and when I found this sheer swiss dot from Stevie Saint fabrics, I was sold. It was perfect. To make mine, I went with the pattern suggestion of piping the front and back yoke and to do that I chose a white satin bias tape which was so kindly included in my order of the fabric. I really liked the idea of the white over black piping because I wanted that "pop" of color. Here, you can see the shorter sleeve version and on the sleeve I added a touch of the piping just above the cuff. to accessorize this look, I chose black and white pieces to keep it simple.
