I did this pattern for the Nashville doll show, it had a 40’s theme. The dress is almost an exact copy of an original found in an old ad from that period.
I made the fitted dress for Tyler in a floral rayon which had a very nice drape to it and worked great for the draped inset on the front skirt. The sweetheart bodice gathers in at the side of the armhole with small bands. The sleeves are puffed at the top only.
