Vintage 1930s Dress Patterns

1930s Dress Sewing Patterns 

Thanks to the female liberation of the ’20s flapper movement, middle class to upscale ladies of the 1930s were more active participants in day-by-day household affairs and were even working part time outside of the home. In this era fashion was influenced by the golden age of film, by stars such as Bette Davis, Greta Young, and Carole Lombard among the many who influenced women’s fashion during this time. The top designers of this era were Madame Vionnet, Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli who designing a more elegant and woman about town look. 1930s fashion sewing patterns included midi length bias-cut dresses, puff sleeves, belted waists and large yokes or collars. Dresses also featured High Cap Sleeve and the daring Low Back.  This outerwear trend was particularly helpful for evening wear styles.
