The vintage inspiration for this weeks #PatternPuzzle has come from a pattern I found on the So Vintage Patterns website. Unfortunately, this one has been been sold but they have a mountain of great vintage patterns for all eras. I was attracted by the asymmetrically-set, diagonal seams with gathered drape. But not so much the button decoration. By adding the extra seams, I believe I have made it easier to construct, as they eliminate the corner seams. I have also reworked the back view from the original design to carry the front, diagonal seams through to the back dress.
