Hollywood 1647: One-Piece Frock. Princess fitting front with one-piece panel and side fronts joined in a built-up waistline. In back, the skirt joins the blouse at waistline. Flat shaped collar and two styles of sleeves.
The 1930s are a bit out of my comfort zone, but I really like this shirt-dress.
It seems that the older the pattern, the smaller the instruction sheet becomes! There is nothing incredibly challenging about this pattern, so it was easy to put together, but the instructions were not very helpful.
The only alteration I made was to make a narrow hem to add to the length. The tea-length looks a bit more 1930s to me, which was the look I was going for.
As always, more pictures and info may be found over on my blog, Lilacs & Lace.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
