Speaking of The Hunger Games’ odd choice of Depression Era fashion…how about Katniss’ gathered darts on the stone blue number?
I recently sewed up a crepe back satin 1940’s style wedding dress with gathered darts similar to Katniss’ and I am so in love with them. I’m not going to lie, I kind of want to put them on every bodice ever. So here’s the technique! The instructions are in the image descriptions. Happy vintage sewing.
