New Pattern! 1939 Blouse, Shorts, Skirt, & Girdle


New Pattern Day!!!  Yay!

This pattern is from circa 1939 and has a great beach vibe, but works well for whatever your wardrobe needs are.  This pattern includes a blouse, shorts, skirt, and cummerbund.  If you make the top and skirt in the same fabric it looks like a two piece dress.  If you make the top and shorts in the same fabric it looks like a playsuit. If you use coordinating fabrics for the blouse, skirt, and shorts in fabrics that harmonize with each other you’ve got a mix and match vacation or day to day wardrobe.  Add the cummerbund belt (a gathered fabric that closes with hooks and eyes) for that iconic late 1930s/early 1940s beach look.

The blouse has two patch pockets and short, puffed sleeves.  It fastens up the front with buttons.  The blouse hits slightly below the smallest part of your waist.  The front of the blouse has release tucks.  The shorts have two release tucks at front on each side, are cut full. The skirt can be made in a short or long length and is cut on the bias.  Both the skirt and the shorts hit a little above the smallest part of your waist and are finished at the top with an interior waistband of belting or grosgrain ribbon.

I decided to go ahead and multi-size this pattern, so it includes bust sizes 30″-40″ bust all in the same packet.  The original size it was based off of was a size 32″ bust.
