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. Not feeling too confident? Why not ease yourself in with our Silk Cami pattern first?
