This is a sewing pattern reproduction of an incredible 1929 couture afternoon dress. The original pattern was designed by famed couture designer Maggy Rouff.
This wonderful design features three versions that can be sewn with long sleeves or sleeveless. The front has a wrap effect with yokes trimmed in bows and a flounce for a faux-bolero effect. The straight skirt is trimmed with asymmetric flounces for the suggestion of an uneven hemline in a manner that was very fashion-forward for 1929.
For a photograph of the original Maggy Rouff dress, as well as original Paris illustrations, please see the below.
Year: 1929 (This also works quite well for the early 1930's!) The dress is for day wear but if left sleeveless, it could be worn for evening wear in silk as well. For an even more formal evening look, simply cut 2 extra sets of the lower flounces and sew a few inches below the upper for evening length as illustrated below:
(One size only at this time.)
Please keep in mind that this pattern takes up two huge sheets of paper (there are so many flounces!) so it is a bit more expensive to print and ship than the average pattern. The instant download version is also two large and will require 84 US letter or A4 pages.
Instructions in English are included.
