E-PATTERN 1946 Dresses E6659
E6659; 1946 Dresses
15-piece hand-drafted pattern originally by McCall, this is a very unusual dress for the draping across the skirt and keyhole cutouts. The short sleeve is pleated at top for a cascading effect. The shoulder line is carried out with shoulder pads (pieces/instructions are provided to create your own 40's style). Draw the skirt and drape lengths to the floor and wear this as an elegant evening gown!
5/8" seams are allowed.
The finished model is shown in black wool crepe.
