Curvy Month Pattern: A Favorite Dress No. 1077, circa 1937

I realise I haven’t shared many patterns from the Thirties during Curvy Month – but that’s about to change with the final designs coming up (promise).

I couldn’t wait to share this lovely dress with you, from ‘Handmade Fashions to Knit and Crochet (The Spool Company)’, c. 1937.

The airy stitches, the cross over lace bust, the bishop sleeves – so perfectly act deco!



















This dress is sized to fit a 38 inch bust and 42 inch hips. (This one would be a good candidate to up-size as the top has a lot of ease, and the skirt would just need extra stitches added).

Light fingering yarn is required, on 3mm needles.

    The crossover lace bust is just breathtaking!
