This is from a 1950s pattern I just got from Etsy. Absolutely gorgeous dress pattern but an absolute pain in the arse to make. I had to completely redraft the boddice to fit a normal woman without a pointy bra. Aside from that I am very happy! Oh so pleased to have been able to use my new dress form to readjust the bust because I’d have gone crazy doing it myself!
Vintage fabric… I am thinking brushed cotton but the looks of it… although it potentially has viscose in it because it has a tiiinny bit more give.
