Playing costume catch-up with a couple of events! This one was the Mid-Atlantic WWII weekend in Reading in early June. World War II is a little later than we usually do (and personally I really don't like early 40s fashion), but it wasn't much sewing for anybody, and a nice well-attended event that wasn't too far away.
I made most of a sundress from a Vintage Vogue 1940 pattern - the key word being "most." I tried it on the night before and it was too big. D'oh! Totally fixable, but not the night before an event I had to get up very early for. So I wore a very old striped cotton dress from a 1947 Vintage Vogue pattern (good thing I have a penchant for vintage in Real Life!) and called it Close Enough.
Glad I did, too, as my sundress had a little bolero that wouldn't have fit a cardigan over top, and (amazingly for early June around here) I needed that cardigan all day! Cool and overcast, with an occasional smattering of raindrops. Well, I'd rather that than 95 and sunny!
