1933 Evening Gown – Decades of Style #3301
This fabulous vintage pattern is from 1933. It is a wonderful evening gown that could easily be adapted into a wedding gown. The side skirt piece is cut to take advantage of bias drape. The back is low cut but not too daring. We were able to find a “convertible” bra at a major department store that worked fine with the finished dress. The front neckline is a flattering V-neck with a triangular cut out for added glamour.
The fit is what you might expect. There is 4” of ease at the bust but only 3” of ease at the hips. Lightweight or dress weight fabrics with a nice drape would be appropriate. Bodice is self lined and the skirt is fully lined.
