Get this 1930s Evening Gown pattern and be gorgeous by dinnertime!

Based on an original pattern from the early 1930s, this gowns dolman sleeves and paneled skirt is as flattering as it is typical of the early 30’s.  Mid-calf length and full-length options included.  Sleeveless option is perfect for evening wear.  Beautiful in sheer silks in matching or contrasting colours.  A real vintage beauty!

Reconstructing History patterns are different from other reproduction patterns!

We don’t just photocopy old patterns and sell them to you.  We use the original patterns as a basis.  Then we grade the pattern in modern sizes, up to 48″ bust and 40″ waist, so they’ll fit far more sizes than the original patterns ever did.  And we don’t just stick you with the old vague instructions either.  Kass personally goes through each pattern, improving the instructions, modernizing the vocabulary and adding in all those things that the old pattern companies assumed their customers knew.  Yet we don’t remove the flavour of the original pattern, so you can truly experience using a vintage pattern without all the trouble of resizing and “translating” it.

All sizes (busts 28″ to 48″) come in the same envelope.  Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you’ve come to expect from Reconstructing History.

Fabric Suggestions:  
silk crepe, chiffon, organdy, georgette, voile and other sheer dress weights

snaps for side closure
4 yards 54″ wide

    I love how the dress moved. The top was a light jersey knit. The bottom a slightly heavier jersey knit. I needed it to ‘give’ because I had a scene where I had to fall to the floor and cover my head to dodge flying bullets! The dress required more hand work than I had anticipated, but I’m glad I took the time to do it. This dress is now a permanent part of my personal wardrobe.
