Give-a-Way Four! Mad About You.

But what's up with the hat?
That's right ladies, I've got a "Mad Men" era dress here.  And in a 38" bust no less!  This is a figure flattering sheath dress with round neckline, kimono sleeves.  The matching jacket also has kimono sleeves.  Its calls for soutache trim.  I can just see all sorts of neat embellishments with this dress. Its like a canvas waiting for your brush, or sewing needle.  I think a navy blue with white trim like Gertie's dress would be fab!

This dress actually came to me in a large box of sewing patterns my wonderful friend Beth Ann (whom I stayed with in NY but has since moved). Her neighbor was having a yard sale, or moving, I don't remember which. In any case, she was lovely enough to send the box of pattern goodness my way and now I'm sharing that with you.

The directions and pattern pieces are all there. It looks like this was made up

Bust: 38"
Waist: 30"
Hip: 40"
