I finally finished my dress for the 30’s—last week’s challenge. It isn’t perfect, but in the end I do really like it.
I was inspired by what I read about sleeves becoming more detailed and full during this decade.
I used McCall’s 6024 pattern, and there were some definite problems that I ran into with the pattern! I’m glad I only paid a buck for it. It could of course have been my mistakes in cutting and sewing, but I’m pretty confident that not all of it was me. I could go on and on actually, but I will refrain. Just know that I think the pattern has some issues!
So my hubby and kids came with me to take pictures. We drove the 15 minutes to the spot we liked, took two pictures, and the camera died. So we tried turning it on and quickly snapping a shot and that worked twice more, and then we couldn’t do anything else! Frustrating! So we went home, and I called Sabra and she went with me to get some more photos. Thank you friend!
I love hanging out with Sabra. She’s just a fun person to be around. We had a good time, but I felt like an idiot and well, I look like one too in a few. Here are my three “favorite” dorky pictures. I’m looking at the thousands of bugs and mosquito’s getting me in the next picture.
The only other person able to participate this last week was Flor do Céu. She made this awesome framed saying inspired by a British poster in 1939. Isn’t it lovely? I’d love to make something with this saying on it!
Are you ready for the 1940-1949 decade? I’m going to keep it more simple this week!
