When processing lots from the same person, bits of information about them came through. Like the potential seamstress really liked tucks. AND, the seamstress only dreamed of these dresses, not a single one was cut. See what I mean ....
Both the front and back of this lovely dress is pin-tucked from the round neckline down to the hipline. This pattern includes a scarf, but I don't think I would cover up those tucks.
This pattern is billed as either a dress or a jumper. It has front tucks at the waistline, ending in ties. Here the tucks serve as an alternative to the gathers the tie belt would have created.
The tucks on this Chloe original take the long sleeve dress and turn it into a elegant, loose fitting day dress, or elegant evening gown.
The eye-catching tuck on this dress extend into the sleeves, front and back. Perfect for the board room (the short version with different shoes, of course), or an evening out with someone special.
Notice that this dress has two sets of tucks, the eye catching tucks on each side of the front buttoned band, as well as the slimming tucks at her waist. Nice !
Oh, the other thing I learned about this woman, she started the 70's as a size 8, and ended them as a Size 12. Most of these are right in the middle, a size 10. They are listed in my shop (just click the link over each picture) to see more information. There are, of course,a lot of other Vogue Dresses, as well.
I hope you enjoyed the pin-tucks. Thanks for dropping by,
