New Pattern Time! 1930s Dress, Jumper and Blouse

Hurrah! Time for a new pattern!

This pattern is based on a pattern from the late 30s, probably 1937 or 1938, and features a fun square necked dress or jumper that buttons up the front with a fitted high waistband.  The skirt is cut in gores so it has a good “swish”.  It can be accented with  rick rack braid or bias binding, or can be left plain.  It looks cute in prints (in fact, I’m in the process of making one up for myself), and it can be worn over the full sleeved blouse which is also included with this pattern.  The skirt of this pattern has been shortened three inches in these photos, but if you raise the hem up to around the knee this pattern will easily carry you into looks for the early 1940s!  Great for swing dancing!


This pattern is now available on my website in sizes 30 to 46 inch bust, and it’s on sale for a special introductory rate of $22!

Many thanks to the lovely Beth of V is for Vintage blog for modelling for these photos!
