#BLOGLIKECRAZY 11 - MY NEW LOVE: 1940'S FASHION...

...this rainy, chilly Saturday afternoon was spent falling head over heals in love with 1940 fashion while binging on Netflix's Bomb Girls. Oh the dresses, suits, hats, jackets and coats.  I gathered lots of sewing inspiration.


I made the necessary pattern adjustments to Vogue 9036 - mainly the back rise and slant pocket area.

 
and this was the perfect Saturday afternoon to spend with a big cup of Mangosteen Peach Green Tea, and my wonderful Kai Shears while finally getting around to cutting out my new pants.  Hopefully construction will begin tomorrow.
