Make Do Monday – The finished Blitz dress

photo 4

As you might remember from last week, I started cutting out my pieces of material to make the Blitz dress, a 1940’s inspired sewing pattern by Sew la di da Vintage.


I made my darts in the bodice lining and then sew some gathering stitches onto my bodice front.


There are clear photos and instructions which I followed through out the making of my dress.


Stitching the skirts side seams…


I also made sure to press all of my seams after sewing them to get the best result as possible.


Here it is!


To finish the dress off I got this lovely piece of old lace out of my stack of vintage trims and I think it fits perfectly together with the floral fabric. Now I can’t wait to make another one, I think that there are so many ways to make this dress. Next I think I’ll try and make a one with shoulder pads as well for a proper 40’s look!
