-:1940's dresses:-

Hi all!
So...... today after my canceled class.. Mom and I decided to go to Joann Fabrics- her needing material and batting for her quilt for a customer.. and I wanted to seek a new 1940's pattern and fabric to go along with it! So- this FABULOUS green floral print just says *VINTAGE* and I absolutely fell in love with it!! I thought I'd given up all hope on looking for something 40's - and being totally new to the synthetics of this day.. and not knowing how to switch from 1860's mode to a 1940's and very updated fabric time! To clarify something- I made my first 43 dress with the sleeves- in a cotton and I want to try the black fabric because it is a rayon blend and will be very easy to dance and it's very flowy... and the green is a linen and cotton blend. Well here are the photos- and I need an outsider's opinion on which one would fit better for the 1940 dress pattern on the left and the 1943 pattern on the right.. Either would look really pretty, but just not sure yet!

God bless,
