A #1940s dress made from vintage Butterick 1707. Worn at the Virginia Military Aviation Museum hangar dance. This was my first try at #1940hair and makeup. Hubby and I danced the night away to the tunes of Glenn Miller, and Cole Porter. See #costumingdiaryb1707 for all posts related to this dress.
It may be old, but this presser foot from a Singer 15K is still up for the job. All that is left for this #1940sdress is some handsewing. #costumingdiaryb1707
'Cause it ain't #1940s unless there are shoulder pads. At the home stretch...just need to add the skirt, and put in a zipper! #costumingdiaryb1707 #shoulderpads
