1940s Tea Dress
Sew Over It
The 1940’s tea dress sewing pattern from Sew Over It is perfect for an intermediate dressmaker. The dress features a gathered bust detail, a panelled midriff and skirt, flattering elbow length sleeves and lovely contrast cuffs.
What we think: This bad boy is definitely for an intermediate maker, there are a lot of areas that need fitting and it will really come into it’s own in a drapey fabric.
Suggested Fabrics: Rayon and crepes.
This sewing pattern is available in PAPER format.
