Pattern Tour E30-2102, 1930 Dinner Gown

A frock with a little of everything from its uneven hem full of godets to beaded straps!  I designed this pattern based on the color rendering originally sketched by a pattern company artist at a runway show in 1930.  The caption written on the original reads:'Dinner Gown of shaded pale green tulle, combined with lace, edged with pearls.  Chic Model, N.Y. Hollywood’. This pattern is for the more advanced sewer as instructions are very basic and lightly illustrated, they are not depicted in a step-by-step manner. 3/8" seams are given. Sizes: Size set A fits 12-16 (30" to 34" bust, 24" to 28" waist,...

Alexandra Reynolds 1930s EvaDress Patterns halter Pattern Tour

Pattern Tour D30-6529, 1930's House, Beach or Sports Dress

  10-piece hand-drafted pattern originally from Pictorial Review, 'Sleeveless and backless, except for bands that cross in back, this is easy to make. Shoulder ruffles are optional. This model is in wrap-around style and fastens on the right side with a button and on the left side with tie-strings.’  This pattern was originally marketed as a Sports Dress, but I see it well fit as a house or beach dress. Love those strap flounces! RECOMMENDED FABRICS: Satin, Rough silk crepe, moire, metal fabrics, velvet, lace, rayon, celanese or bemberg.   Sizes: Size set A fits 14-20 (32" to 38" bust, 26" to 32"...
