Auntie Susan's Sewing - 82 - Royal Canadian Air Force Mess Dress

Mess Dress uniform made for my husband, an officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Single breasted jacket with linked buttons, satin shawl collar, fully lined with two vertical inside pockets. High-waisted pleated trousers with side pockets and braid at side seams. The shirt, bowtie and RCAF tartan cummerbund were purchased. My dress is navy blue crepe-back satin. Top is Vogue 8494, skirt is Burda 8327. The satin (shiny) side of the fabric was used on the inside so it could show on the flounce of the skirt. Photo taken New Year's Eve 2011 at a ballroom dance in Denver.
