1930s Day Dress
Folkwear - sewing patterns for ethnic & historic clothing & costumes
This practical dress uses fabric economically, yet still looks chic and trendy. Features round neck with collar points and peplum cleverly cut on the straight grain but with the slimming look of a bias cut. Or with buttoned front, flounce collar and sleeves, and eyelash pockets for a more casual look.
Both dresses have a flattering dropped waistline in back, slightly flared skirt, back zipper and unpressed tucks in front that eliminate the need for bust darts and create the fashionable broad-shouldered look of the late-1930s period.
Suggested fabrics: Rayon, medium-weight silk, microfiber or other fabrics with drape or small-print fabrics with sheer flounces.
Multi-sized: Misses XS – 3XL
