Vintage 1950s Butterick 8503 sewing pattern and instructions for Juniors' slim sheath dress for day or evening JR. MISSES' & MISSES' SHEATH: MAGIC TO MAKE Softened sheath with easy styling throughout. (A) Short-sleeved version with contrasting cummerbund. (B) Crop-sleeved version...all one fabric. (C) Crop-sleeved version with contrasting cummerbund, binding...perfect for sheers.
Pattern is new, unused / uncut in factory-folded (FF) condition. The envelope has aged as seen in the photos with some discoloration on the front and back and a few small tears along the edges, but the instructions are 100% intact as are the pattern pieces.
This design is marked for a Juniors' Size 11 which is noted as a Bust of 31-1/2", Waist 24-1/2", and 33-1/2" Hip though I would not be concerned with the sizing if the style and shape are right for your project. There are an endless number of websites and blogs offering step-by-step instructions on how to accurately resize vintage sewing patterns for the perfect fit.
Although the exact date of this pattern is unknown, the evolution of Butterick's method of sizing their patterns places it between 1956 and 1966.
