I made this hooded dress for a UK meet-up of sewers! It’s from a 1940 pattern and I must say that I really, really love this pattern! It has princess lines in the front and back. The princess lines in the back create a great soft pleating effect. The pockets are partially lined with contrast fabric flaps and the hood is also lined. The dress closes with buttons down the front. It’s a perfect dress for UK weather :) and I think in the Autumn I might even wear it as a coat!!
Dress: Red gabardine, union jack lining
