When my husbands grandmother, a former seamstress herself, gave me this lovely silky pink fabric. I immediately thought of the Folkwear #233 Glamour Girl dress pattern, which is a 1940's evening gown, that I had.
I wore this dress New Years Eve, but although I love it, the color and style are amazing. I felt like a little girl who borrowed her mums best dress. So it will have to wait in my closet until I feel I have grown into it.
