I have dreamed of a 1930s-40s burgundy rayon dress for years. Through my little personal side business as a vintage personal shopper (only for friends unfortunately!) I have managed to get more than ten burgundy dresses through to others. But that special one for myself, I haven’t quite yet found.
As I have recently found seven yards of a vintage burgundy rayon, it’s time to make that dress! I have had this fabric folded by my bed for a month now, trying to figure out what kind of design I want to make. Which is kind of difficult when you have been thinking about something for such a long time, and the possibilities are endless. I have enough fabric to make two dresses, one to keep and one to sell in my shop. So I thought it would be fun to ask for my followers for some feedback – because it might be for sale in my shop later!
Take a look at the four different 1940s sewing patters below and please let me know what you think. You can reach out to me through sending a comment below, email me or chat on Instagram (@jessicasilversaga). Of course I will keep you updated on the process, which is my favorite part. Having something to grow through passion and love!
