I just love this dress. Look closely at the pattern and the drawing of the red dress model looks like Sophia Loren! It's just the type of dress you would have seen her wear. This vintage dress pattern features 2 dress styles. View A features a below elbow sleeved sheath with princess lines and a crossed pleated bodice and deep back scoop. View C is a full skirted dress with below elbow slweeves. Either dress can be made sleeveless as well.
