Item details

Such a lovely 1940s shirtdress pattern! This New York Pattern issue has topstitched pleats in the skirt front, and scalloped edges on the pockets. Make it up with short sleeves (shaped to echo the scallop details), 3/4-length sleeves, or long sleeves gathered to bands at the wrist. The neckline can also be scalloped, for a soft and pretty touch.

Sweet and dainty in a floral print, elegant in a plain silk crepe, nostalgic in a fine cotton lawn or sateen - the choice is yours!

Bust 32"
Hip 35"

The pattern is pre-cut (unprinted), and appears to be in factory folds! The envelope (and New York Pattern envelopes are the BEST - i love the design and the art and the printing) is split at the top; there are a number of tiny edge tears and some corner wear. Tucked into a fold of the instruction sheet is a clipped newspaper photo of one Bob Barlow, football kicker, under the heading "Scores for Aggies" - i hunted and hunted to see when he played, but couldn't turn up anything, much to my dismay... (if you do, let me know - i'm curious!)
