Due to recent events and discussions surrounding cultural appropriation, and in the interest of being more sensitive to the impact of our actions, we have decided to no longer carry Folkwear Patterns. We are selling these patterns at cost, and they are final sale.
This practical dress uses fabric economically, yet still looks chic and trendy. View A features round neck with collar points and peplum cleverly cut on the straight grain but with the slimming look of a bias cut. View B is more casual, with buttoned front, flounce collar and sleeves, and eyelash pockets. Both dresses have a flattering dropped waistline in back, slightly flared skirt, back zipper, and unpressed tucks in front that eliminate the need for bust darts and create the fashionable broad-shouldered look of the late-1930s period.
Suggested fabrics: Rayon, medium-weight silk, microfiber, or other fabrics with drape. View B is particularly attractive in small-print fabrics with sheer flounces.
