A runner-up (aka “and now for something totally different”)

just since I couldn’t wear this without appearing like Margaret Dumont (not that there’s anything wrong with that) doesn’t imply it’s not one of the loveliest gowns to ever grace a pattern envelope.

This is a contest submission from flea, who states “I like the lean shape however with the volume in the lower skirt, I discover bit cap sleeves extremely flattering, plus you get an connected platter collar, as well as are those pintucks at the throat? I likewise have a silly fondness for a gown with a zipper in the side seam. I can see this in a navy with while polka-dot, a dark red crepe for evening, or a pale purple linen (though oh, the ironing!)”

I second all those as well as add “a cream silk georgette with an abstract geometric style in brown … ” To wear with your brown linen cloche as well as cream-and-brown spectator pumps, of course! Thanks, flea!

Click on the link to see the rest of the pattern envelope as well as a back view (the pleats are there, too). It’s from the vintage vogue repro series.
