I love the fashions of the 1940s almost as much as the 1930s; however, I do not make a lot of 1940’s wear. I have a number of patterns but have not been good about getting to them.
So next up is this 1940s dress: Simplicity 3835. The short version; the long version is a nightgown.
I have no idea when this pattern came out. It looks early 40s to me but on vintage pattern wikia it is listed as the late 40s. Any ideas???
This is going to be done in a white swiss dot since I have yards and yards of this fabric in the stash. I think I purchased 10 yards last year. The pattern is small in the waist for me but weirdly the stated hips are big enough to fit mine. So, some pattern adjustments will be in order!
Hopefully I will have more success than with the 1940s skirt!
