A couple of days ago my Mum and I went to a fabric store to buy a few things for a project we were working on. We came away with some other things as well. They had a great sale, so I bought fabrics for a skirt and a couple of dresses. This is by far my favourite:
As soon as I saw it I knew that this would be made into a 1940s-style dress, and the first thing my Dad said when he saw it was that it looked WWII to him. It has a lovely drape, and it was so un-expensive I bought enough material for two dresses. I really like WWII-era dresses.
