There's one more 'Sew Cinematic Challenge' outfit I want to make before I tackle my Gilda gown and that's the Aviator dress pictured above. Have you seen the movie 'The Aviator'? It has some fabulous fashions in it. My favourite are those worn by Kate Beckinsale (as Ava Gardner).
Gah! Isn't this dress divine? Ok, I'd love to hear your thoughts about the actual movie. I'll be honest in that I didn't really like it. I felt it painted Howard Hughes in an overly dramatic (as only Hollywood can do it) light. I guess the screenwriting left me wanting a bit more....
LOVE this photo of Kate Beckinsale reading a McCall's magazine:
So the project I want to tackle is this colour-blocked dress with the cute keyhole opening and funky sleeves:

I've been wanting to do this dress for ages (ever since last year's Sew Weekly Oscar challenge) and I have the perfect pattern for it--Advance 4143:
I'm making View A without the pockets in the same colour combination! Don't you love it when you find the perfect pattern?
