1950s Rockabilly Style Princess Dress Sewing Pattern



We just love this cute Empire line dress from 1954. This would make a really lovely tea length
Wedding dress with a contrast lace top.

The Bodice of this dress is gathered under the bust. The low, wide V-neckline and midriff seams
and armhole edges are trimmed with bias. There is a bow at the centre back, and the gored
skirt is flared.

The pattern is Bust 36 ins. Wast 30 ins. Hip 39 ins.

Some Suggested fabrics: View 1: Cotton, Shantung, Taffeta, Surah, Chambray. View 2:
Taffeta, Cotton, Rayon, Silk

The pattern comes with step-by-step instructions and a helpful sewing guide.
