1955 Evening or Day Dress with Drapes E50-883
E50-883; 1955 Evening or Day Dress with Drapes
12-piece hand-drafted pattern originally by Vogue, 'Very slim skirt in two lengths. Pointed crossed over front draped section continues to cross over at back and terminate in loose panels. High back neckline with long fitted bias sleeves or very low back with shoe string shoulder straps'.
The drape interfacing piece was missing from the original pattern. It needs to be created from the top edge of the drape piece. The depth for this is best determined after you lay pleats in your mock-up phase.
5/8" seams are given.
The model is shown in silk taffeta.
Size 16 fits 34" bust, 28" waist, 37" hip.
PATTERN NOT IN YOUR SIZE? Upon request, I am happy to furnish an additional schematic showing where to adjust the pattern pieces with instructions on how to re-size the pattern.
