Vintage Forties Housedress from a NewYork Pattern


I picked up this pattern at a local antique store, and have been waiting to try it ever since I got it. There is no date, but judging from the hairstyles and pattern style, it is probably a late thirties/early forties pattern.
So fun to make and to finish too. The finished product is up in the shop if you'd like to see more pictures. Now I'm trying to think of what's in my fabric stash so I could make another one! =)

Just a quick question... we tried to order something off your etsy shop, but it said that we couldn't buy it until we verified our email, but their email never came through. Is there another way we could order it, or should we just keep trying it??

p.s. I'm so excited! My family is getting me one of your aprons for my birthday!! YIPPE!!

Hmmm! I'm not sure what to tell you! If you have an etsy account and have a paypal account, I'm not sure why it wouldn't work.

Well, we have a paypal account, but we don't have an etsy account. That's what we were trying to do with no success last night! We even asked them to send us another email... and none of then have come through. We even checked our spam. (We can't have an account unless we verify through our email.) Well, we'll just keep trying. Thanks!!
