Bright yellow 40s inspired summer dress!
Made eariler this spring to attend a play and do some swing dancing. Also pictured is my sweet and lovely friend, Des! :) Who looks adorable in her pink, green, and white ensemble!
Fabric is a lightweight rayon shirting in a sunny yellow, white and lime green daisy print.
Scoop neckline, sleeveless, buttons down front and has a self fabric tie belt.
So comfy and cool!
The bodice was from this 1940s pattern:
Sans sleeves, and with gathering on the bodice instead of darts.
and the skirt from this c. 1940 pattern:
This is also the pattern I used for my green 40s dress.
Fun times! :)
