while trawling through the op shop i found this from 1976:

its one piece cut on the fold so thats how you get one seam

I cant wait to try it!

hi can you tell me who this vintage pattern is by please? or would you be prepared to sell it  Grin

I've got a kind of girlyish question:
:cough: uuh. chest support?
I guess the thickness of the fabric sort of depends on the level of support, but I'm not seeing wearing a bra with one of these dresses..I was kind of wondering about that...

i suggest for you to invest into a covertible or strapless bra. and there's plenty of "braless" breast supporters out in the market now. look into it...

This is sooo exciting.  I'm going to make one.  mento -- too cute.  Thank you rostitchery, for the tutorial on your wonderful blog, and thank you, Keena, for the link that made me have to make this dress.

Ok i still havent made it but heres the measurements off the pattern for those who asked

Fold your fabric (about 3.4m at aleast 1.2m wide) and put the side with the cut out bit on the fold, cut and then sew between the dots

and heres the front picture that doesnt seem to work

and in case you were still wondering im NOT interested in selling

Sorry for the bump, but I have been looking into these dresses a lot lately. Thanks for the patten and Tutorial rostitchery, yours seems much simpler than the patterns floating about!

The Butterick Pattern is also 5230: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v228/jocelynaus/pattern/2005_1.jpg

An Aussie designer has just come out with one of these she is calling the Ultimate Black Dress: http://www.sachadrake.com.au/ultimate-black-dress.html
The styles for that one are here: http://www.sachadrake.com.au/styles.html
I actually first came across it when a friend of mine was pregnant and she really wanted the 6 way dress, which appears to be the same, except has a boob tube added in which I imagine is reinforced for support.  http://www.fertilemind.com.au/page.asp?e_page=353518&product=382084&brand=372671&productName=Fertile%20Mind%206%20Way%20Dress&FAQ=369860&HIW=373033

I want one, but not $250 want one so I visited one in a store and they appear to have approached it in a different way so I thought I add it here. Basically it is a A Line (waist to ankle length) with a wide triangle piece which is overlapped by about 2" away from the seam. The top piece is wide enough that the tails reach the skirt hem and thin enough at the centre to create a boob tube when tied at the back. Basically the construction is like this:


It's made of silky Jersey too, the top peice is also just has a 1cm turned over hem and the right sides of the skirt and top are sewn together.

Thanks for the thread!

can someone tell me the pattern fromvenuswithlove posted can be adjusted to have a more flaring skirt? i am a plus size so pencil type would not look good on me. i also want this style (it is almost the same with lydiasilvestry's) cuz it can cover more parts for bra wearing.. help?

hmm maybe if you changed the angle so that bottom edge is longer?
« Reply #78 on: April 25, 2007 07:15:14 PM »

That's what I'm going to do. Change the angle to make the bottom longer.

I think this version is easier to make then the other "quickie" dress. I do like the quickie dress version though because I plan to make 3 with removeable straps so they can be interchageable.

Has anyone made this version yet?

« Reply #79 on: May 13, 2007 09:08:15 AM »

I love, love, love this dress. But I'm wondering if anyone has an idea of how the pants version is made? Is it just a pair of pants with a tube/straps attached at the top?
