This pattern is for a ‘40s style inspired dress. This dress features a ruffle that follows the yoke that wraps from the back of the dress to the front where the yoke follows the princess lines of the dress down the front. The dress has princess lines in both the front and back and a sash that ties in back or alternatively in the front. The sash options are either narrow or wide. The dress can be made with a contrast fabric for the ruffle and sash. There are lots of options for adorning this dress with ric rac, piping or topstitching. This dress has a bit of frill but not too much frill for summer fun. The dress has hook and loop closure at the back and can be made out of light to medium weight cotton or cotton blends. The sashing can be made out of the contrast fabric or premade ribbon.

Love this pattern! Easy to follow instructions with excellent results and perfect fit! I cannot think of a fabric that would not look cute sewn into this dress. This is my new favourite pattern! It might be reminiscent of the 50's but looks very today in it's own way. The ruffle definitely makes it special!
