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 center front for a lovely extra bit of interest.
The pattern contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams to help you along.
Sewing Level:The 1940’s Tea Dress sewing pattern is suited to intermediate sewers and above, with experience sewing fluid, drapey fabrics. We also advise that you are confident fitting for your own body, as the midriff area of the bodice is intended to have a close fit.
Fabric Suggestions:The 1940’s Tea Dress works best in lightweight fabrics with lots of drape. Think rayon challis, viscose, georgette, silk and satin. We recommend avoiding anything too crisp, such as cotton, as it doesn’t have the required drape.
