Sew La Di Da - Paper Sewing Pattern - Dorothy Dress
Sew La Di Da Vintage style sewing patterns are created in the UK by designer Caroline Smith.
With her off-the-shoulder V neckline, figure-skimming bodice and slight fishtail skirt, Dorothy is a vision of 1940s showgirl glamour.
In three-quarter length, Dorothy is perfect for proms, parties, and wedding guest outfits. Like all of our patterns, Dorothy is actually deceptively simple to sew, and a real head-turner to boot!
Silks and light satins will give Dorothy a softer, lighter feel and an Old Hollywood understated elegance; duchesse satin and heavier fabrics such as velvet will give a more structured feel to the dress, creating a flattering silhouette and fuller skirt for high impact glamour. The neckline particularly lends itself to embellishment opportunities – try a feather, lace or crystal trim, for a truly unique occasion dress
