1940's Glamour Girl Dress Sewing Pattern
1940's Glamour Girl Dress Sewing Pattern by Folkwear
The glamour emanating from Hollywood in the 1930s and 1940s held the American public in thrall. Movie studios published still photographs of their stars in elegant attire, and fans clamored for the chance to copy the dress, coiffures, and make-up of their favorites. Folkwear's Glamour Girl Dress is a stunning example of early 1940's styling, designed to emphasize feminine curves, drape elegantly, and give the wearer an aura of discreet sexiness.A close-fitting bodice is highlighted by a narrow "V" neckline. Front bodice and skirt gather into a curved midriff that ties at center front, providing snug individual fit. A fitted back hip yoke ensures a smooth line. The flared skirt drapes gracefully at center front and back bias seams. The three-quarter length sleeves are distinctively gathered at the elbow. Dress zips at left side seam. Shoulder pads are essential for the proper early 1940s silhouette.
Three lengths are offered - the ankle length of our original evening gown, a 1940s daytime knee length, and a strictly contemporary mid-calf length.
Note the reasonable yardage requirements, which reflect the need to conserve fabric during the Second World War.
Multi-sized pattern includes bust sizes 30.5-38, waist sizes 23-30 and hip sizes 32.5-40 all in one package. Please see back cover photo for sizing chart, fabric and notion requirements.
