1940's inspired tea dress graded sewing pattern for the modern body shape. Graded size U.K. 8-20
A stunning, vintage-inspired woven wrap dress with a wearable contemporary feel, the 1940’s Wrap Dress is a gem from the Sew Over It archives. Stylish, sophisticated and elegant, you can wear this dressed up or down, perfect for both daytime and evening.
The 1940’s Wrap Dress features a wrap front bodice with a front collar and pretty shoulder pleats. The bodice gathers into the uniquely-shaped pointed waistband, and the dress closes with hidden buttons or press studs. The slightly A-line wrap skirt is flattering on all shapes, and the narrow sleeves mean you can pair this dress with your favourite jumper or cardi. Both the sleeves and skirt come with a choice of two different lengths.
Perfect in light to medium weight woven fabrics with lots of drape, the 1940’s Wrap Dress works beautifully in crepes, heavier rayons or cotton lawn for less experienced sewers. Please note this pattern is not suitable for knits.
