After looking around for a few days, there is now a folder on my laptop containing about a hundred things I would love to make, mostly things from early 1930's to mid 1950's. I love smart constructions and how they sculpted the clothes by cutting the fabrics in ways we rarely see today. Well, I have to start somewhere, and since it's my birthday in less than two weeks I decided to choose a dress that would make a lovely birthday dress.
Here it is: McCall 6893, from 1932
I will be using this fabric:
And for some advice on how to construct the dress... I am using my all time favorite book on pattern cutting, "Iduns bok om tillskärning", a Swedish book from 1956. I already have a basic bodice pattern made with that book as a guide that fits perfect, so I've been working around that.
As soon as I'm done you'll get to see the dress and the process of making it!
