Decades of Style 1925 Zig Zag Dress Vintage Style Sewing Pattern

Whether or not you believe there is global warming, we can all agree that every woman needs at least one GREAT summer dress. And this vintage pattern from 1925 is it! It also makes the perfect winter dress if you make the long sleeved version.

It is a loose fitting, sleeveless pull over dress with a rounded or V-neck line. The shoulder seam falls forward on the Front Bodice just a bit with gathers there instead of a bust dart. A long Tie finishes the back neck edge and provides an elegant design detail.

The eight-gore skirt is where the dress really shines. Each gore has a pointed top and creates a zig zag line at the hip where it attaches. It is flared and moves like a dream. We love this pattern and we think you will too!

We recommend dress weight fabrics in the fiber of your choice. There is 6" of ease at the bust and 4" at the waist. There is 2" of ease at the hip but the zig zag shaped seam provides more ease than that.

3 sizes included in pattern. Must choose size range to purchase.
New Uncut!

    This arrived so quickly after I ordered it! The pattern looks good and I'm looking forward to making the dress! Edited to add: I made the dress and the process was very easy and clearly described, for the most part!

FIRST CLASS (roughly a week)
We can’t be responsible for damaged or lost packages (ie - we will not grant refunds on lost or missing items without purchasing insurance first). If you want to purchase insurance for your package, let us know before ordering

PRIORITY (3-5 business days) RECOMMENDED
This service comes with insurance and tracking. We rarely have problems with lost packages, but if we do the above still applies.

We ship USPS International First Class. It is difficult, if not impossible, to track these packages. We will try our best to get your package to you, but there is no guarantee once it crosses the border. All international shipments are subject to additional shipping charges based on taxes, tariffs and duties put into place by that country. All these fees are to be paid for by the customer at the time of delivery.

Please contact us if you need a shipment more quickly than Priority (3-5 business days), but be forewarned – this is not our forte ;). It’s best to email me directly for a speedy reply –

It happens, and it is sad and frustrating for everyone. We always try and make it right! If you order something using Media Mail or First Class and it goes missing, it is almost impossible to find it. If you are worried about getting your package to you PLEASE choose Priority Mail, it is often just a dollar or two more and so worth it!
