Item details

Welcome to the year 1907! News flash- Women's clothing adopts men's tailoring. (Again) The Shirtwaist is in style. Schoolmistresses embarked across America to teach children at very low wages. History aside, this pattern was based on an actual garment set made in white cotton with black thread woven in to form tiny black squares. The shirt back has a princess-line accented by wide tucks along the seam, very feminine. The seven gored skirt is flattering on almost all figures. The skirt has bias trim at the hem and also echoes on the blouse cuffs and collar.

Variations: The shirtwaist has the option for a scalloped-edge button front or straight-line front placket. The skirt can be made in a long version or a shorter vsion.

The pattern has cutting lines for sizes 8, 10, 12, and 14. Check the back of the pattern for measurements. (Shown above)

Folkwear has been in business a long time and is still in business today. Ursula's Alcove is a licensed dealer. This pattern is new, not used or vintage.
