Perfect Pattern Style 116|
This pattern is for a sophisticated floor length evening gown. The lace bodice is attached to a fitted overdress with a single scallop at the base of one princess seam. The front dress seams are hidden with narrow decorative braid and gathered silk ribbons. The bodice seam is covered by a pleated cowl style collar piece attached by hand to the top edges of the armhole openings. The underskirt is also princess seamed with the lower part of the skirt covered in rows of ruffles. The scallop on the overdress is slightly gathered up and trimmed with a large satin ribbon bow. The long gloves are lace on top with swimwear backs to provide stretch.
