Sew Over It - 1940's Tea Dress Pattern
The 1940's Tea Dress is a stunner of a dress. Based on vintage fashion from the 1940's, the dress features gathered bust detail, a paneled midriff and skirt, flattering elbow length sleeves and lovely contrast cuffs. We love to add three decorative covered buttons down the centre front for a lovely extra bit of interest.
The 1940's Tea Dress is definitely one for you intermediate sewers. You will be using tricky fabric for this dress, so it's best to have some experience working with lightweight drapey fabric before you tackle this pattern.
Materials required: a drapey woven fabric such as a crepe, georgette or rayon. You will also need a 22 inch concealed zip.
Sew Over It patterns are supplied in a durable envelope complete with full instruction booklet explaining each step in great detail, with beautifully illustrated diagrams to help you along.
