Dressing for Spring, 1943

What is it with me and polka-dots lately? This dress in Mallinson's Miami rayon fabric was made from Simplicity pattern 4536, Spring 1943 . The big white buttons mimic the polka-dot print on a beautiful shade of green that is perfect for spring and summer. I like the use of black gloves here. They balance the black hat. White gloves would have been too prissy, don't you think? The photo was taken by George Hoyningen-Huene in the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.

I'm not sure what I like better, the green color or the polka dots!

And that's the beauty of sewing. You can change the style to a V neckline if you want!
