Today’s pattern is a beautiful Advance pattern (number 5113) from 1949.
This lovely dress has a belted waist, long skirt with or without pockets and offers a collar or boatneck. The collared version also has buttoned short sleeves and front buttons. The belt can be in the same color as the dress or contrasting, likewise with the cuffs and collar. This is luckily in a 42″ bust size and 45″ hip size, so only a bit of modification will be needed to size it up to my size.
The hairstyle is very late 40’s – so pretty! The dress could be made in different fabrics for more of a house dress vs. an evening/going out dress.
What fabric would you make this dress in?
