For those who don’t know VPLL, it is the Vintage Pattern Lending Library. They have a membership program for discounted prices, but I’m not a member. I have tried two other patterns fom VPLL, with no success. This one, however, is a winner. I’m always happy to find older patterns in plus sizes and 7451 is quite stylish. The original is a size 42, so I added 2 inches to the side seams. I also added a 1in FBA. I’ve recently come understand a major fitting issue is a high hip and raised the hip 0.5in. I could have come higher. The only design change I made was to omit the ruffles. I’m just not a ruffle gal. This is, so far, my favorite early 30’s dress that I’ve made and I think I’ll make it again, in a feedsack print.
