1940's Anne Adams Dress

Life isn't allowing for much blogging time at the moment.  All is well here, but September brought with it the start of a new school term, and we're all a little bit busy! 

I have lots of makes I want to get up on the blog, but I haven't the time for many words (that might be a good thing!!), so please forgive me for the photo overload!! xx

This dress was made from an original 1940's Anne Adams sewing pattern from America.  It was made using original 1940's rayon silk, which falls and drapes beautifully, but is a slippery blighter to work with!!  It is a generous size, and will fit a 46" bust, 38" waist and 48" hip.

  2. Ann Adams patterns are so clever. I love the combination of cross over front and sweetheart neckline!

  4. The gray, white, and floral bunches fabric looks much like the wallpaper my grandmother chose for the house she moved the family into in the mid-40s, after their first house burned to the ground. Her paper had bunches of pale roses, but the effect was much the same. That paper stayed up until Grampa took a spell of modernizing in the 60s. Lauan panelling was nailed over the old plaster walls. Not nearly as nice a look, but it was modern for the time. The house has passed into another family's hands, haven't been inside it in years. It was a happy house.
