Default Wife is looking for '30's style dress

Maybe off topic from car and truck talk but since I want to dress up as a 30's farmer for the Gilmore day in Sept, she wants to get something for the same time period. Not necessarily a farmer's wife look.


Any of your spouses know of a website that sell dresses that are NOT antique clothing?

If your wife can sew (-or you have a seamstress locally), then patterns are available from MAFCA. Also, many times with the pattern number, you can find them online too.

She found a few patterns she liked but doesn't have time to make them. I wouldn't have a clue on how much or how to find someone that can make them here. Maybe I'll put a bug in some local club member's ears.

There are a lot of guys on here that have wives that used to be or still are into era fashion, both casual wear and judging. That could be a large source for what you are looking for.
We will need an approximate size though.

If she doesn’t have time, take pattern to a seamstress or a tailor.
