You'll feel like the belle of the ball in this charming halter dress (circa 1949), based on a gown by American designer Claire McCardell. The original version was floor-length and made of chocolate brown taffeta with a black grosgrain belt and a black organza bow at the neck; the front was adorned with a row of rhinestone buttons. Your version will be different, of course, and will perfectly complement your own sense of style.

The pictured version of this dress, Folkwear 258, is made in a whimsical vintage fabric, but you can make yours in anything from summery cotton prints to luxurious silk or velvet in lengths from floor to thigh-high.

Suggested fabrics: Dress: Medium-weight cotton, rayon, silk, wool challis, and blends. Bow: Light, crisp fabrics such as organza or taffeta.

Misses size 6-20.??

Since the 1970s, Folkwear patterns have been used by theatre and dance costumers, historic reenactors, art-to-wear-aficionados, and anyone who enjoys dressing up. Folkwear patterns are based on vintage fashions and traditional ethnic garments for an authentic look. But with a fresh eye and creative touch, these timeless styles can become exciting and trend-setting wearable art today.
