Wear again? Yups! Love it! There are some nit picky things that I'm not 100% happy with (yay topstitching.... not) but I really love it. It's cute and comfy and a fabulous color.
I just adore this blue purple color on me! I have some extra fabric from this project that is going to be made into a blouse.
Jewel tones are very 40s to me but they also read modern and really help this outfit from looking too costume-y.
I really want to make a self-fabric belt to go with this dress but I need to buy some belt kits first!
The best thing about this dress is the pockets! Such a fun shape!
I've found that I really love early 40s styles. There's something edgy and so stylish about them.
