This pattern won the 2004 Young Designers’ Contest. Miss Amanda Kastner designed her winning entry based upon fashion plates from 1911 and 1912, creating a kimono-style bodice with an optional inset. The overskirt can be made in a coordinating or contrasting color. This pattern is very easy to make and so comfortable to wear!
- Sizes 6-26 all included, with instructions for “D” and “DD” sizing.
- Instructions included for nursing mothers to make a nursing dress!

This pattern is rated “intermediate” because of the bodice inset, but a beginner should have little trouble creating a beautiful dress with limited help. Be sure to visit this designer’s own website, Hint of History Patterns, for more of her beautiful, inspiring work!
