Item details

Vintage Simplicity printed pattern no. 1711 originating from 1946. Beautiful illustrations to front of packet.

The back of the packet reads:
"Women's one piece dress: the front button bodice is classically tailored flaunting soft gathers at the front shoulders and the back and front waistline. The eight section skirt is made with side front panels. In Style I a classic collar is used and the purchased belt slips through tabs, buttoned to the skirt. The long full sleeve is caught to a buttoned wristband. Top stitching is strategically placed on the collar, button closing and wrist. In Style II the sleeves are short and the neckline is shaped. A self fabric belt is used and top stitching trims the button closing and sleeve edge."

Size: 42
Bust - 42
Waist - 36
Hips - 45

Outer packet
14 x pattern pieces
1 x instruction 'primer' sheet

All pattern pieces are included and are in good, vintage condition. Pattern pieces have been cut, but hem length edges remain intact.

Outer packet shows quite a bit of wear; both the front and the back of the packet have been torn away from each other, whilst marks from where sellotape have once held the packet together are evident. Despite this, most of the information on the packet remains unobscured. Taking the pattern in and out of the packet repeatedly does cause damage to the packet itself, and this must have been a well loved pattern. To preserve from any further damage, all the pattern pieces, instructions and packet will be sent to you in a poly pocket. Please see images for clarification.

Overall, a lovely pattern in usable condition and a great investment for your vintage pattern collection. This would be a really fun pattern to adapt, should you have basic pattern cutting skills.

As with all sewing patterns, I would always recommend tracing around the original using blank pattern paper, and using the tracings to pin to your fabric. This will prolong the life of your pattern.
