This challenge is pretty straight forward. I love late 30s early 40s fashion and feel like it fit in perfectly with stashbusting seeing make do and mend and the great depression. I bought the blue rayon at a rummage sale in St. Louis I think it is 40s or earlier due to the type of dog and the style.
What the item is: rayon novelty print dress.
The Challenge: #3 stashbusting
Fabric: dog and dish print rayon and black cotton velveteen
Stashed for?: 5 years or more
Pattern: self drafted
Notions: one tiny vintage button and a pearl plastic buckle
How historically accurate is it? I would say 80% If the sleeves and hem were longer I would say 100%
Hours to complete: about 10
First worn: today for pictures but I love it and I am sure I will wear it again and again
Total cost: When I bought the materials I’m sure it was under $20
