1940’s Wrap dress

10 years ago this year, the year my fourth and last child started secondary school, I first attended our local adult education centre in order to learn how to play Bridge.

It is now the 10th anniversary of meeting some very dear friends and the start of our Bridge journey together.

We decided to mark the occasion by going for afternoon tea together.

..and I made the Sew Over It 1940’s Wrap Dress to wear for the occasionVersion 2

The body is made from a rust coloured lightweight knit and the collar and waistband are made from a wool challis dress that I made in the 1980’s and can no longer fit into (by a long way !!) but  I still adore the fabric and have been pleased to repurpose it. I’m afraid we were too busy chatting to have any pictures of me actually wearing the dress but it was just right for the occasion.
