Item details

Gals, this dress pattern is just too cute- Ive hung onto it for 10 years, but havent used it yet, so it needs a new home! An original 1940s pattern, its undated but it looks to be circa 1943 or so. A two-piece dress with nautical styling, the envelope reads:
'.. The long overblouse with sailor collar or pointed lapels, has tucks at mid-section to release easy fullness. Patch breast pocket and long or short sleeves. Skirt with side pleats front and back.' And best of all, the illustrations on front show both a pretty floral version with ecru ruffles or full-on nautical versions with military insignia on the breast pocket and sailor cap. A rare pattern that will create wartime wonders.

*this is an unprinted pattern and best suited to an experienced seamstress.*

Size: envelope reads 'Size 14 32 bust.'
bust 32, hip 35, as listed on envelope front. No other measurements given on envelope or instruction sheet.

Labels: 'Hollywood patterns 711' and has a photo of movie star Anne Shirley with her name and 'RKO-Radion' underneath.

Condition: the pattern is complete, with all pieces and instructions present. Piece J has some dress sketches on it (very cute!) and there are some notes on the instruction sheet. Envelope is poor with some damage to sides and previous and current tape repairs.
