And can I tell you, I just love this style!
The wool flannel is so thick and springy that you don't even notice that its not lined!
And because I had to make it extra long because of the dress, it flicks nicely when I walk!
And the shoulder pads I made are just the right size I think! I'm going to show you next week how I made them - SUPER simple!
But here is the dress that started it all
I know those look like flowers - but they are a red and a cream elephant with their trunks intertwined!
I really just can't believe how well this 1940s dress fits me! And the rayon!!!! Oh my goodness I am in love with rayon - its light and slinky and sexy and it swishes... oooooo its DIVINE!!!!!
I did find a couple of small holes when I was ironing it, but shhhhh! I won't let that stop me from wearing it - its just too gorgeous.
So now, after making three coats this season I'm really looking forward to sewing something else!
