To make dealing with the heat a little more bearable, I dug out my linen 40’s style dress from the back of the closet. Linen is the best material when it’s hot and humid. This dress is made from the same pattern as the polka dot one I’m working on now, though I’m making a few changes on that one.
I put my hair up in a matching hairstyle and tied a scarf round it. Much better.
Now I can even feel just a little bit stylish in my suffering. If the weather forecast is right (which I cross my fingers for), there will be rain and thunder later today – I hope it will cool and clear the air so I can breathe again.
ååh! supersnyggt!-40talet hade verkligen klass och stil.ReplyDelete
Great outfit, love the headscarf, Have a sweet day!ReplyDelete
Hi Sarah! Love your blog. I've been researching dress patters for a WWII reenactment I'm attending in September, and I fell in love with your dress here! Do you remember what pattern you used? Thank you so much! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! I drafted the pattern myself; I don't know if there is a similar pattern out there. It's pretty basic though, so I think there ought to be...ReplyDelete
Thank you so much! I'll keep an eye open for similar patters. That's so awesome that you drafted it yourself! I'd love to figure out how to do that. Thanks again!ReplyDelete
