This pattern I adore. A perfect interim dress that can work for day and after 5. I have always found these types of dresses to be hard to find in larger sizes.

This pattern in a 48 bust 42 waist 53 hip, offers two sleeve lengths, both tucked and with a short sleeve option scalloped. I adore the soft sweetheart neckline, and the economical gored skirt.

My patterns are hand traced staying true to the original vintage shapes and markings, scanned and outlined with vector lines. They are printed on quality paper ready for use. As with all vintage patterns, a mock up is strongly encouraged as this pattern has not been tested for assemblage or fit.

My patterns are for home use only, not commercial production.

Please note, in an effort to conserve paper some instructions may be printed on the pattern paper in large open spaces between pieces, instead of solely separate prints bundled along with the pattern.

With the line, as well as prints of the original instructions I am also including some goodies. Printouts of some vintage techniques including seam finishing and lay out techniques. A bevy of tools we can all still use.

***With reproduction patterns, allow up to a week prior to shipping.***

This Pattern is Perfect for my Plain Pattern Project sew-along.
