Sisters’ 1914 Afternoon Dresses

By Jennie Chancey


These are the 1914 tea gowns we made for our tea party last spring. I ordered your pattern when I was about 16 (nearly 4 years ago!) to make a ‘for fun’ dress. When our friends set up a tea party last year, we decided to pull out some special fabric we had stashed away and sew up some nice dresses. I made my own (the pink one), and my mother made my sister’s for her. Shamefully, I can’t remember what our under dresses are made from since we bought the fabric several years ago to have on hand when we decided we would be brave enough to use it. My sister’s over dress is a cream chiffon, I believe, and mine is white crushed chiffon. We didn’t have any problems with the pattern, and the instructions were clear and easy for me. Thanks for making such a lovely, simple to use pattern!! The only tricky part was sewing with that slippery chiffon, but we got the better of it, and we absolutely love the way the dresses turned out!!!

God bless,
Crystal
