Bolero and Princess Dress
Size: 14
Bust: 32
Copyright: Unknown – 1950’s?


Pert and pretty partners that make a wonderful fashion combination anytime, anywhere. Pop on the contrasting bolero for chilly temperatures or a covered-up look. Solo in the young profile princess with sunburst neckline.

I really enjoy this style of dress. There is just something about the shape of it that makes me weak in the knees. ^_^ The pattern shows the dress being made in four panels that extend from the bodice down to the skirt, making it look rather simple to construct. Once I figure out how to reshape and size the patterns to fit me correctly, I will definitely be making this dress.
