This dress should of been quick since I made it before. I think I've just been working too hard and have been dogging it a little. Here is another version of a 40's dress. This time I did not use elastic on the sleeves. I just put a trim and gathered the top and the bottom prior to the trim. I think it turned out very well. I'm from the West Coast and it is going to the East Coast so I have a long wait to see if she likes it and it fits ok.
