Pattern- "Rear Window" Cocktail Dress Style 102
This lovely cocktail dress is was inspired by the 1954 classic "Rear Window" staring Grace Kelly. Edith Head was the costume designer for the film and this dress was one of the two cocktail dresses that Grace Kelly wore in the film. I used prepleated chiffon when I made this dress, but I have included a pattern for a gathered circle skirt that can be made out of regular chiffon. This pattern will also make a lovely strapless dress using only the bodice and skirt pattern pieces.
This pattern will also fit Tyler without any alterations.
