measurements in inches
Whether or not you believe there is global warming, we can all agree that every woman needs at least one GREAT summer dress. And this vintage pattern from 1925 is it! It also makes the perfect winter dress if you make the long sleeved version.
It is a loose fitting, sleeveless pull over dress with a rounded or V-neck line. The shoulder seam falls forward on the Front Bodice just a bit with gathers there instead of a bust dart. A long Tie finishes the back neck edge and provides an elegant design detail.
The eight-gore skirt is where the dress really shines. Each gore has a pointed top and creates a zig zag line at the hip where it attaches. It is flared, very full and moves like a dream. We love this pattern and we think you will too!
We recommend dress weight fabrics in the fiber of your choice. There is 6? of ease at the bust and 4? at the waist. There is 2 ? of ease at the hip but the zig zag shaped seam provides more give than the finished measurement indicates.
