Description

Folkwear Pattern 261
Paris Promenade Dress

The height of style, circa 1918-1920, this loose fitting dress lets everyone know that you are no longer tied to those darn Victorian corsets of old! Based on free flowing Grecian garments, this dress ties with a sash or cord. Long strands of pearls were the jewelry of choice to go with the outfit. A matching handbag pattern is also included.

With just three main pattern pieces, this is an easy dress to make. Add on two sash ties and you are done! The shape is reminiscent of a coathardie in the way in hugs the waistline. It's very flattering. Tassels and beads as well as using printed fabrics are among the ways you can embellish this dress. Tassel making instructions are included.

This pattern comes in Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large with measurements listed on the back, see above. Fabrics should be light to medium in weight with good drape. Silk, silk velvet, rayon, feather-weight cotton, or jersey. For a more defined look (less flowing), use lightweight linen, silk taffeta, or crisp cotton.

Folkwear has been around for a long time and still is. These patterns are new, not used or vintage. Ursula's Alcove is a licensed dealer.
