1938 Dinner Dresses D30-9906
D30-9906; 1938 Dinner Dresses
8-piece pattern originally by McCall, the dinner dress may be cut in longer or shorter length (as a cocktail dress or or day wear). Long fitted, short cap or short, shaped sleeves may be used.
This, as do many of my patterns comes with fully illustrated instructions for construction and finishing.
3/8" seams are allowed.
I outline the process of making my ribbon gown version from this pattern here.
Read my post about the ribbon gown I made from this pattern on Threads Magazine!
Also, as printed in Threads Magazine Reader's Closet in the August/September 2013 issue.
Size set A fits 14-20 (32" to 38" bust, 26" to 32" waist, 35" to 41" hip).
Size set B fits 40-46 (40" to 46" bust, 34" to 40" waist, 43" to 49" hip).
This is a pattern made available via (and re-drafted by) EvaDress from Kim Grant of the former Silk Poppy.com (2003)!
