247 Lindy Shirtdress
£12.50 – £19.50
Buy the 247 Lindy Shirtdress sewing pattern from Folkwear. This dress comes from the 1940s when square shoulders, narrow hips, and skirts that ended just below the knee were the height of fashion. Fabric rationing had led to the use of darts, pleats, tucks and other fabric manipulation to add interest to dresses without a lot of extra fabric. The Lindy Shirtdress has an interesting bodice construction, with shoulder and waist pleats and darts, and a shawl collar. Skirt darts create a flattering look while adding plenty of ease in the hip area. Elbow-length sleeves with cuffs make this nearly a year-round dress.
