Item details

A Gorgeous 1940s evening dress, with a pointed waistline at front bodice. There are two bodice options, a fitted one with straps and two bows, or a center gathered, modified sweet heart with small pouf sleeves. Think of the many variations you could make with this pattern and some luscious fabrics!

Per the pattern envelope:
"The skirt is seamed down the center front and back and gathered along the entire upper edge. In Style I, the bodice is fitted with darts and a fold is joined to the upper edge. It has narrow shoulder straps and is trimmed with tow large bows. In Style II, the bodice has a gathered center front seam and the back waistline is fitted with darts. The low cut neckline is shaped in front and back and the dress is finished with lantern sleeves. "

Year: 1945 printed on instructions--73 years ago!

Pattern printed size: 10
ALWAYS go by the pattern measurements, as sizing changes from year to year, and from company to company

…see back of pattern envelope for additional size information, and for required yardages.

I carefully open, count, and check all of my patterns before listing.
(If a pattern is in Factory Folds, I will not unfold it.)

Condition: This pattern is in excellent unused/folded condition. This pattern is in FACTORY FOLDS. It is also factory pre-cut
The pattern envelope is in poor condition, with missing portions of the illustrations, and brittle with tearing along the top and edges. (1940s paper used in pattern envelopes was known for this.)

That being said, ALL OF MY PATTERNS ARE SOLD AS IS. There are NO RETURNS on vintage sewing patterns.
Sewing patterns are "EPHEMERA", which means that they were meant to be used, and then thrown away.
