The 1940’s Tea Dress is a vintage-inspired stunner.
Inspired by Lisa’s love of 40’s fashion, the dress features gathered bust detail, a panelled 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 pattern contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams to help you along.
Fabric & Notions
The 1940’s Tea Dress works best in a lightweight fabric with lots of drape. Think rayon, viscose, georgette, silk and satin.
