Item details

Very romantic 1940s evening or party dress pattern. The fitted top has short, puffed sleeves and can be made in two versions: buttoning down the front with a high neckline with Peter Pan collar, or with a side zipper and a wide round neckline. The evening length skirt is made up of equal stripes of two different fabrics.

By Swiss publisher Meyers, no. 9957. Meyers Modeblatt was a weekly magazine for housewives, and though pattern sheets were included once a month, most patterns had to be ordered by mail, like this one.

All pattern pieces are pre-cut and marked with small holes for markings etc. Pattern pieces are stamped with remarks like "grain line", "side seam", "Centre back" etc. in German and French. Instructions are in thext on the sleeve, and they are in German and French. No illustrations with the instructions

Size: given as 94 cm bust:
Bust: 37" / 94 cm
Waist: 29" / 74 cm
Hip: 40 1/2" / 103 cm

Condition: complete, pattern has been used, with the top with the wide neckline. The pieces for the top have therefore been cut out for the wide neckline, but the cut off pieces are still there.
