This is a 1957 pattern reproduction by Vogue. It includes princess seams and a flared skirt with inverted pleats. I’ve also created a matching belt for even more of a vintage touch!
The yoke/sleeves construction is a bit challenging on this dress, so careful reading of the instructions is a must. It also eats up quite a bit of fabric – 7 yards for my size. It’s totally worth it, though!
