It’s new pattern time! Introducing Palisades, a 1940s Wrap Dress Pattern.
Palisades is a mid 1940s wrap dress inspired by an original vintage pattern but with improved fit, illustrated step-by-step instructions, and cutting layouts for 45″ wide fabrics.
This dress has tucks at the center front bust, on the shoulder straps, and has a gathered skirt that wraps at the back. This pattern can be accented by rick rack trim and can be made with contrast fabric for the bretelles and belt pieces. A great dress pattern to use with fun bold cotton prints!
This pattern is now available for pre-order on my website and is available in sizes 30 to 40 bust for a special introductory price of $18.
Many thanks to the lovely Beth from V is For Vintage Blog for modelling for these photos :)

This is fantastic! I’ve been looking for something similar (not a wrap, though) but none of the vintage sundresses I can find fit me. So this is perfect. =D

Beth is a stunning model for this dress! :) Love this wrap style dress. I’ve not always been a huge fan of them, but lately have converted. hehe! Especially because (as you pointed out) this looks like a great canvas for a fun 40s-inspired print. Bravo on another pattern release!
