Pictures of the 1931 Dress

I think I have talked this one to death.  I went with the rolled hem on the bottom which I quite like and do not care if it is not period correct.  It is a little wonky but the fabric is so slippery, hemming was a challenge.  I pressed the bejebbers out of the curves and finally got them to lay flat.  The placket…I still have issues with but will consider the dress done even if I do go back and fiddle with the placket .

What a beautiful dress! It looks as though it will feel wonderful on and be very feminine and elegant. I just love that 30's look.
