c. 1978

Women's Sizes: Small - Medium - Large

DESCRIPTION: "The stalwart women who conquered the American prarie in the latter nineteenth century wore full, yet practical housedresses of washable cotton, usually with an apron. Ours falls to the ankles in voluminous gathers from a gracefully rounded yoke. It has long sleeves gathered at the shoulders and into buttoned cuffs. The ruffled collar is set into a collarband, and the dress has pockets set into both side seams.

The deep front opening typical of this era closes with buttons in the yoke; hooks and eyes can be used to fasten the long opening.

The flounced apron has two keyhole pockets and a waistband which buttons in the back. Instructions for decorative feather-stitch is included. For contemporary wear, this dress is charming in the authentic version, loose or aproned, or it can be cut street length. If you prefer, the front opening can be shortened and the neck can be finished with the collar band only."

CONDITION: Envelope is worn, with corner tears; merchant stamp on front. Pattern, directions, and embroider charts are uncut and in excellent condition.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

All patterns are from a non-smoking home.

I am happy to combine postage on multiple purchases whenever possible.

Thanks for looking!
