1930s-xmas-dress-12-25-12Lauren of American Duchess: Historical Costuming made this cunning frock from Decades of Style pattern #3007 - 1930s Button Dress.  Lauren commented, “I gathered the butterfly sleeves into puffed sleeves, and set the waist ties at an angle instead of straight.  I hemmed the skirt at 3 inches…. Overall, I recommend this pattern. It's easy to sew, looks nice when complete.” Get your perky on, and sew this dress up for spring in snappy red rayon plaid and sprinkle it with yolk yellow quadrilateral authentic vintage buttons!
