1940s tea dress

The dress fastens with an invisible zip down the centre back, has facings around the neckline and sleeve hems, a fluted skirt with a machine hem, a yoke at the waist and three decorative covered buttons at the front.

In the class we will make basic alterations to the pattern to ensure better fit and will fit the garment as we make it.
