1940s Tea Dress Paper Sewing Pattern | Sew Over It

Skill Level:

  • Description

The 1940s Tea Dress is a stunner of a dress. Based on vintage fashion from the 1940s, 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 1940s 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.

The pattern contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams to help you along. And if you get stuck with anything, don't forget you can find the 1940s Tea Dress Sewalong on the Sew Over It blog!

Materials required: a drapey woven fabric such as a crepe, georgette or rayon. You will also need a 22 inch invisible zip.
