Pippa Middleton's Cowl Neck Dress from the Royal Wedding, Style Arc's Pippa Dress Sewing Pattern and my 1930's Vintage Book: Ladies Garment Cutting and Making by F.R. Morris

The "Style Arc's Pippa Dress" cowl neck dress got me thinking I would share some pictures of cowl neck designs from my 1930's Ladies Garment Cutting and Making book by F.R. Morris, the diagrams and fashion illustrations are by Leonora Curry.

It is still possible to purchase this book in some places and there is a publication before the Second World War and after.  The one after  has noticeable 1940's clothing illustrations, if you are interested in the History of Fashion you can see the changes in style and tastes within the two books.

StyleArc's version of this dress is beautiful, a lovely cut and accents the style of the original dress very well.
