I have some pictures posted on my blog of my daughter in two 40's reproduction dresses that I made for her. I'm thinking of making this a weekly thing...I had so much fun doing this...

The dress and the model are beautiful! My 13 yr loves this era of clothes...and I thank you for the idea you gave me for her birthday! Time to look for a pattern and get out the sewing machine. : )

So pretty! You are very talented and your girl is so beautiful. Do you sell the dresses? I just love the feminine look, I would wear them! I can sew a little, but I would never be able to make anything that gorgeous.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these dresses!!!!!! I just adore the 40's dress style but have been unable to find any patterns in Plus (I'm a curvy gal) or even close enough for me to alter. Patterns are my demise--I rarely even use them anymore.

I love the dresses and what a beautiful daughter! Your photos are lovely! What I love so much about 40's dresses are the shoulder pads!!! I used to have several that I wore in high school and college...along with my raccoon coat...I was a total retro girl in the 70's. Love to see this!

I love those dresses. I would totally wear them. She is a doll!
Happy it is, indeed, for me that my heart is capable of feeling the same simple and innocent pleasure as the peasant whose table is covered with food of his own rearing, and who not only enjoys his meal, but remembers with delight the happy days and sunny mornings when he planted it, the soft evenings when he watered it, and the pleasure he experienced in watching it’s daily growth.
