1940s Belle Curve Dress

Decades of Style

There are quite a few 1940s dresses with a sunburst configuration of gathering or darts but this one is BY FAR the best! It is named for the beautiful curved seam between the front and back pieces (there is no real side seam.) The shorter length is perfect for day or cocktail depending on your fabric choice. The long version would make an amazing wedding gown!

Center back invisible zipper. Cap sleeves. No side seam on skirt. 2 bust darts and 16 small darts on each side. Gathered fullness at back skirt. Shoulder and fish-eye waist darts on Dress Back.
