From 1971 this is an original Simplicity no. 9509 sewing pattern for a women's dress or tunic and trousers/pants. The top-stitched dress or tunic with front zipper has a front yoke, set-in sleeves, stand-up collar and patch pockets. The dress has long sleeves and may be worn with or without self fabric tie belt. The tunic version has short sleeves. The trousers have a back zipper and elastic waistline casing. The size is 12, which is bust 34", waist 25 1/2" and hip 36".
The pattern is complete, although the dress pieces have been cut to the shorter, tunic length. The cut-off pieces have been retained making it possible to cut the longer version if you choose. The dress pieces have also been widened with newspaper which has been sewn on. I have not attempted to remove this, but the actual pattern pieces are still intact, so if it is not easy to remove, the newspaper could be trimmed to match the original cutting line of the pattern. The cutting and sewing directions are in the envelope which is in fair condition although becoming a little brittle at the bottom.
All my patterns are checked for completeness and condition and are posted in board-backed envelopes.
