Wearing History #R116- Circa 1939 "Victory" Dress Pattern

This listing is for an E-Pattern to print yourself at home on your home printer's USA letter and A4 sized paper.


--- DESCRIPTION ---

A Wearing History Resto-Vival™ pattern based on an original historical pattern from circa 1939. This pattern works well for late the 1930’s through the early 1940’s and is well adapted to novelty prints.

The original period description reads-

“Misses’ and Women’s Dress. A chic one-piece is achieved by belt stitched to bodice and skirt. Bodice boasts fullness from shoulder yoke to waistline. Skirt flares softly. Style I has rick-rack trim and short sleeves; also pointed pockets in the skirt. Style 2 has long sleeves. Purchased scarf and belt may be used (no scarf or belt pieces included).”

— DIFFICULTY–

Intermediate Difficulty. Must be familiar with basic construction and vintage methods.

— SIZING —

In WOMEN’S sizing. This vintage sizing standard was for a more mature figure. Misses, Petites, Plus Sizes, and Talls may require alteration to fit correctly.

ALL SIZES from 30" bust to 46" bust INCLUDED IN THIS E-PATTERN

Bust- 30-32-34-36-38-40-42-44-46
Waist- 24-26-28-30-32-34-36-38-40
Hip- 33-35-37-39-41-43-45-47-49


THIS PATTERN WAS NOT ORIGINALLY AVAILABLE IN SIZES 30″ Bust, 44″ Bust, or 46″ Bust. Because of this, no layout charts or yardage estimates are included for those sizes. Test your placement when making a mock up to see how much fabric you will need of your final fabric.

Please see the photos for an image of the yardage requirements.

--About Wearing History Resto-Vival™ Patterns--

Resto-Vival™ Patterns are original historic patterns that have been restored and revived. Original patterns are usually available only in single sizes, precut from tissue paper and totally unprinted, with details like grainlines and darts indicated only by small perforations. Resto-Vival™ patterns are clearly marked with drawn and labeled markings. These markings aid the modern sewer in understanding the markings of the original pattern and the construction of the garment. Resto-Vival™ patterns follow the period shapes of the original patterns, maintaining the historical accuracy of the completed garment. Original period instructions are included. These instructions are text only (unless otherwise noted) and fairly minimal, especially compared to instructions for modern patterns. At least an intermediate knowledge of dressmaking and a good familiarity with pattern construction is suggested. You may choose to have a modern or period sewing book handy to help with basic construction methods that the pattern instructions do not cover in detail. Also, fitting a muslin mockup is strongly recommended, as all garments were meant to be worn over period foundation garments or corsetry.
