I Made a 1940s Gown in 4 Hours. Here's How I did It:

One day, I got bored. So I decided to sew a dress from a 1940s wrap dress pattern that I  had lost in my sewing drawer.

I made some alterations to it by adding elastic to gather the top instead of just gathering it the old fashion way. I also added a little flap on the left side of it that made it look more like a vintage summer dress.

I made a matching turban for it as well, but I decided to pair it with some handmade flowers I made instead. The dress also has an amazing v-neck back that I had to alter a bit as well. Overall, I love how the dress turned out, and it only took me about four hours to make!
