Crafty Sew & So Sew Over It 1940's Tea Dress
£14.50

The 1940’s Tea Dress is a vintage-inspired stunner.

Inspired by Lisa’s love of 40’s fashion, the dress features gathered bust detail, a panelled midriff and skirt, flattering elbow length sleeves and lovely contrast cuffs. We love to add three decorative covered buttons down the centre front for a lovely extra bit of interest.

The pattern contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams to help you along. And if you get stuck with anything, don’t forget you can find our 1940’s Tea Dress Sewalong on the blog!

Sewing Level
This sewing pattern is suited to intermediate sewers and above, with experience sewing fluid fabrics. We also advise that you are confident fitting for your own body, as the bodice is intended to have a close fit.

Fabric Suggestions
The 1940’s Tea Dress works best in a lightweight fabric with lots of drape. Think rayon, viscose, georgette, silk and satin.

Fabric Requirements
The 1940’s Tea Dress is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.

Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
