A few days ago I went to see Brave with my best friend. A night out is always a good excuse to dress up so I wore my new 1930's style dress. I made it using a 1930's pattern and some vintage fabric. I suspect the fabric is from the 1970's. It has a slight stretch to it so I was able to get away with not adding any closures to the dress (it also means I can use the left over fabric to make a bathing suit!). The sleeves in the original pattern looked terrible on me, so I swapped them out for these looser sleeves (which I based off of a 1930's dress illustration).
The pattern I used is available here for free. It doesn't have any instructions but it is relatively easy to figure out.
