Description

Made for Corban University’s production of I’ll Leave It to You, by Noel Coward.
Tan Silk from Fashion Fabrics Club.
Vintage Pattern Lending Library pattern, 1920 Dress With Shoulder Drape.

This is a heckuva complicated dress. But worth it! The back bodice and skirt are cut in one. The bodice front overlaps the flared skirt and the straight skirt piece over the curved yoke and then the flared skirt piece overlaps the bodice front and continues around where it is applied to the back. The entire thing is rather difficult to explain and took me upwards of an hour to just figure out how to put it together! The effect, however, is absolutely gorgeous.

A lovely little detail is that the belt actually travels behind the curved front yoke – a small stop in the top stitching allows it to move freely. It’s a small detail, but totally changes the dress. I tried it once with the belt sewn in and it just looked terrible! Moving freely it’s graceful and elegant.
