The 1940s Swing Dress is finished

Lots of work but really enjoyable.  The swing dress is finished. 

I added a side placket for press studs & hooks & eyes because I think that was how dresses were fastened in England until after the Second World War but I think zips probably look better.

I am looking forward to wearing this in the summer.

There are lots of other versions on Flickr.  Just follow the link on the right hand side of the page.
