South Coast, Eng...
Just-below-the-knee 30’s inspired bias dress. It fits snug over the hips and the lower skirt flares out into a 1⁄2 circle.
The V-neck bodice is cut on the straight grain and finished with a facing. There is shirring under the bust and across the back waist which also has a 2 piece belt. The entire skirt and the fluted 3⁄4 circle sleeves are cut on the true bias.
I posted a free downloadable (but many pages!!) pattern on my blogsite for making this dress with sewing instructions too. The pattern is size UK 10/12- US6/8- EU 38/40
Made in silk charmeuse.
