Shopping for a 1917 style dress

Today my niece Jillian and I went shopping for fabric to have a 1917 style dress made for me to wear.  Below is the image we used as our starting point.  It came from a dress pattern from that era almost 100 years ago.  I am having my seamstress Alba make this same outfit for me.  I will wear it this November, when I  sing at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa.  I intend to sing my new song “A Letter From Home”.  This song will be coming out this October in my new book Vimy! Valour! Victory!  My team has helped me pull together a fantastic book!
