Item details

1940s Wartime fabric rationing resulted in something called a Utility Suit for women, which didn't use excess fabric and were for practical every day wear.

Size 14 (32" Bust)

DuBarry #5858 Ladies 2 piece suit with pockets and gored skirt, long or short sleeves.
Size 12 (30" Bust)

Marian Martin #9034 Mail order pattern safari suit, 2 pieces jacket and gored skirt.
Size 16 (34" Bust)

Simplicity #4983 Collarless suit pattern with pleated skirt, jacket has 3/4 or short sleeves. Includes a dickey pattern faux shirt. *envelope is missing so there is no size marked* This pattern is unused.


*A note about vintage patterns: Everyone knew how to sew once upon a time, so instructions were either nonexistent or pretty straightforwardly printed on the back of the envelope. Instruction sheets are not necessarily missing, just fyi. The oldies are for advanced sewers!
My advice for using antique patterns: Carefully flatten out each piece on top of new paper and trace them. Store the old pattern. Use the new one.


FAQs

YOU the Buyer are responsible for making sure your address is correct in the Etsy system. Shipping issues on your end are your responsibility to correct. Any shipments returned to us for any reason will require additional postage to send again. Items damaged in transit are not eligible for refunds from the Pattern Jones Shop. Damages will have to be disputed with the US Post Office as we are not responsible for their handling or facilitating your delivery. There is NO tracking # for International orders once an item leaves the US.

Sizes are not all equal! Each era and pattern brand has a different size number system, so please check the measurements. ie: Just because it says 12 doesn't mean the same size as a 12 garment in a store today :)

We spent hours sorting all our patterns by ERA/DATE and TYPE. In some cases we have a pile of say, 60s little dresses so they're all together for you to choose from, just note the Pattern Company and # Number. Etsy will show us which one your ordered when we get the payment alert!
