This is a pattern from an original 1940’s Teadress. The tucks and gathers are detail rarely seen in todays modern fashion garments. This soft cotton dress flows and subtly drapes your figue, catches us in the thinest area below the bust. I love the pockets too. This is a timeless piece that will always look fresh and sophisticated. A little bit of European Vintage style in the elegant and modern lines of this dress. Measures 100cm around the band that sits below the bust. This fits sizes 8-14. THere is no zip and it simply slips over the head. Length is 122cm
