Sew Over It 1940's Tea Dress Sewing Pattern
Make it yourself Sew Over It sewing pattern.
The 1940’s Tea Dress is a beautiful vintage-inspired dress that can be made for everyday or dressed up for an occasion.
Inspired by Lisa’s love of 40’s fashion, the dress features a gathered bust detail, a panelled midriff and skirt, flattering elbow length sleeves and lovely contrast cuffs. We love to add three decorative buttons down the centre front for a lovely extra bit of interest.
The 1940’s Tea Dress sewing pattern is suited to intermediate sewers and above, with experience sewing fluid, drapey fabrics. We also advise that you are confident fitting for your own body, as the midriff area of the bodice is intended to have a close fit.
The 1940’s Tea Dress works best in lightweight fabrics with lots of drape. Think rayon challis, viscose, georgette, silk and satin. We recommend avoiding anything too crisp, such as cotton, as it doesn’t have the required drape.
The 1940’s Tea Dress is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
The sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
