Authentic vintage 1960s bridal wedding gown pattern for an empire cut dress with demure bateau neckline and princess darting by Simplicity.
This lovely, simple dress can be made in street length or full length, and has three sleeve options: sleeveless, short sleeve, or long sleeve with pretty pointed hems (fitted point sleeve). This also includes a train that attaches at the shoulder
In the 60s, oftentimes a bride would co-ordinate her party to wear dresses similar in cut to hers (see the long, floral version) while her mother, and/or the mother of the groom would wear a street length version, which created a beautifully cohesive look across the front of the church, and in the wedding photos.
The imagery on the front of the envelope is all coordinated in colors of white for the brides, and yellows and pinks on the others. There are no stamps or writing on the front, so the envelope graphics can be copied and used for other fun: shower invitations, refrigerator magnets, or, blow one up and use to play "pin the bouquet on the bride".
There are 12 pieces, they are all present. The bodice and sleeve pieces have been cut and altered, but are easily adjusted back to "normal" to be used again. The other pieces are still uncut.
The size marked on this is a misses size 14, which, in the 1960s translated to only a 34" bust. If you know how to grade patterns, this can easily be made to fit a larger size, too.
This is an original pattern, NOT a copy.
