Tomorrow is Robert Burns' birthday. Burns is one of Scotland's greatest poets and his birthday is practically a national holiday in Scotland! I was hoping to finish a dress in time for his birthday but seeing as I only just finished grading the pattern and cutting out the fabric, I might have to finish it for his birthday weekend :-)
Here are some photos that have inspired my 'Rabbie Burns' dress project. These are all from the Fall 1940 Sears Catalogue:

I'm really hoping I can finish the dress this weekend! While I won't have it to wear tomorrow night, you can bet I'll be wearing some tartan and reading some Robert Burns poetry!
