Portland Fashion Institute - Vintage Dress

MISSES DRESS IN TWO LENGTHS: Dress with close-fitting waist has front and back pleats, button closure, and pleated short sleeves. A: Length is above knee B: Knee-length. Optional lining for sheer fabric.

Make a flattering dress with a nipped waist, wing collar, flared sleeves, and skirt.  Learn how to choose the right size then test your skills in making matched pleats — wonderful on 1″ ginghams — then narrow hems, French seams, and flatted linings — everything to make your dress your favorite go-to garment.

We call our patterns a “classroom in a book”.  Full of illustrations, information, and links, the pattern includes tips to kick up your skills to intermediate sewing.
