Hi! I'm posting in the off chance someone will recognize the pattern this dress was sewn from.



I'm particularly interested in the bodice.

Thanks! Any help at all will be appreciated.

I don't know what pattern it is, but I like the bodice as well. Please let me know if you find out.

Thank you - still searching. I don't even know what this sort of neckline would be called so it's hard to fine a similar match.

I have no idea what the pattern is, but to my knowledge that's a sweetheart neckline (though these days it seems we always think of them as strapless...).

It has a vintage vibe about it. Almost reminds me of 40's Hollywood teen dress pattern, but the shoulders aren't wide enough. 70's vintage dress pattern perhaps? Or a costume pattern? Certainly nothing I've seen lately in the reissued retro patterns. Sorry I couldn't be of help. Hope you find it.

I'd say 40's or maybe 50s. Those cut-on short kimono-style sleeves were really popular in the 50s (judging by the zillions of photos of vintage patterns that I've viewed). The separate sort of "straps" that start at the waist and probably end at the waist in the back were more of a 40's detail, but often ruffled rather than flat.

Vintage Pattern Wiki may be a good place to look, if you are willing to play with the search engine and view a bunch of different pages. I tried searching for "dress kimono sweetheart gored skirt" and found Simplicity 4667 A (love those pockets!) and some similar dress patterns. ETA: There are a few copies of Simplicity 4667 for sale @ Etsy as I type this.

Thank you very much to going to all this effort! That's a great help, will have a look through the wiki now. If I find a similar pattern I can take it to my tutor and ask for advice on alternations. It's for a costume class so open to interpretation.

Thanks to everyone else as well :)
