Vintage Pattern Lending Library # 7725. This patterns features a close fitting dress, with stand up collar. Sleeves may be made in long, 3/4 length, or short options. Skirt features a deep yoke with gathering or pleating at side seams.

The instructions are easy to follow for someone with a bit of sewing experience. If you are not familiar with bound buttonholes, set-in sleeves, facings, etc., a reference guide will be very helpful, and probably necessary. The directions are very clear, there just are not as many picture diagrams as contemporary patterns tend to have. That being said, there is nothing incredibly challenging about this pattern. Just some very special design features, which is why I love vintage!

I cannot think of one single thing that I dislike about this pattern.

The long-sleeves are one of my favorite design features. They are two-piece sleeves that have a slit opening that is closed with a single button at the wrist – très chic! I also love the peplum/apron/yoke feature of the skirt. There are no boring side seams on this skirt! Love it!

I am quite sure that I will use this pattern again. I would highly recommend this pattern to anyone with a love of the 1940s and 1950s style lines.

More pictures and information about the dress, mid-construction as well as completed, may be found over at my blog, Lilacs & Lace.

    The peplum/yoke of the skirt adds a lot of syle to the dress. …very nice work.
