What a sweet vintage pattern from Advance! This teen-sized shirtwaist dress, circa 1957, has a dart-fitted bodice and a very full, softly pleated skirt (131" hem). Make it up sleeveless, with short puffed sleeves or short sleeves with turned-back cuffs. There's an optional contrast cummerbund. The sleeveless and puffed-sleeve versions have a buttoned tab to fasten the neckline below the collar. Rows of gathered lace trim the bodice on the puff-sleeved version - definitely the girliest of the three views.

This is a teen-sized pattern, so be sure to check the back waist length - some folks may need to lengthen the pattern for proper fit.

Bust 36"
Waist 28"
Hip 38"
Back waist length 15-1/2"

The pattern is still in factory folds. The envelope has some edge wear, particularly at the corners, but is otherwise quite nice.
