Dress Pattern

radley | Posted in Patterns on

I saw a dress in an issue of Threads this summer (maybe July) and loved it. Now I can’t find my copy of the magazine to find the pattern name and number. It was a pink/peach tank dress, empire waist, knee lenght. Does anyone remember it?

Thanks!

    Hi Radley,

    I had my July and September issues at hand, so took a look. The only dress I found that came anywhere near the dress you're looking for was in the July issue, though it really doesn't fit your description.

    On page 21 in the Pattern Review is a photo of Simplicity 4070. This is a sleeveless dress made up in a rosy silk (at a glance, it could be taken for peach). It has princess seams in the bodice, a waistline seam at the waist, not an empire waist, and a flared, knee-length skirt. The pattern also includes versions with either a pleated skirt or a bubble skirt plus strapless versions.

      Thanks! That's it, I just couldn't remember all the details very well. Do you think they used the same silk for the whole dress (in the picture)? I want to make one for my sister.

      Thanks again!!!

        I'm so glad I could help. The caption in the magazine says that they used a silk charmeuse for the underlay and a matching crinkled metallic silk organza overlay.I think this dress is very pretty. In fact, I had bought this pattern in early spring, before this issue had come out. I was excited to see how nicely it made up. I haven't had a chance to make it yet; I've been sewing for my daughters all summer. What a wonderful sister you are to sew this for your sister. I know she will be thrilled. The dress looks like it will be easy to fit. Good luck with it.Sherry
