On Friday night I pinned up my victory rolls and got my lindyhop shoes on because it was time for my 1940s ‘Blitz’ themed ball! I used the Sensibility Swing Dress pattern but made it floor length (something I didn’t end up liking because my seams showed up quite badly). However as long as you kept your eyes above my waist it was fine! The night was a LOT of fun; the venue, music and everyones costumes were amazing!
On the pattern side of things, the yoke was the most difficult part of the dress and I found online instructions (best that is out there) still confusing but I got there in the end!
