Kathryn and Lily decided that it would be terrifically fun to have a Foyle's War party, complete with a murder mystery game, Foyle's War themed food, and of course, 1940's decor! You can see Kathryn's post about it here, and Lily's here.
I already have several 1940's dresses... but couldn't pass up an opportunity to make a new one! :) This fabric I also got at the out-of-business fabric shop. I loved the print on the fabric! The pattern I used was Vintage Vogue V8728. I followed the pattern - I just used a size smaller on the neckline than the rest of the dress, and put a zipper in the side, rather than snaps.
I decided to pair this dress with my mustard reproduction 1940's heels. My sister bought them for herself, but they didn't fit her, so I got them! :) To tie them in, I also wore my mustard belt.
These photos are from the event - my sister set up a photo booth, complete with Foyle's War themed props, and decorated with fabric bunting which she and Lily sewed.
^kudos if you know the reason we are smelling the onion^
