Dress #3 -- Hollywood 1804 (1939)

I started this dress in January, before my life got knocked for a loop. It sat on my dress form, unfinished, for months as I moved, went out socializing, and adjusted to a new life. Well, I am beginning to cope better I figured it was time to break out the sewing needles again. I have a room in my new place especially for sewing and everything is hooked up and ready to go.

Hollywood 1804 is made out of fabric with little skeletons on it. I also decided to enhance the V-shaped bodice with a contrasting bias tape. Other than that, I followed the pattern as instructed.

I'm excited to get back into being creative. I would like more 30s and 70s dresses :)


  1. Welcome back to the sewing world, you have been missed! I really enjoy this pattern and the fabric too. Keep sewing & posting!
    See me at

  2. Welcome back!
    Love your version with the contrasting bias binding, I fear I wouldn't have consisdered sewing this pattern at all because the frill version would have been too distracting for me.

  3. I want to see this one on you, Amy Jeanne.

  4. She's back! Yay!! And with such a lovely dress, too. Hoping all is well and straightening itself out for you... Can't wait to see what else you've got on the go! :)
