This replicated pattern is sized to fit a 36 inch bust.

This 1931 reproduction sewing pattern features a ladies one piece day frock with flared angled skirt detailing and gathered front center bodice with bow. Two style sleeves include long with attached bell shape beginning at the elbow or short version with flutter edge. Lovely silhouette with feminine tie belt giving the appearance of wrap styling.

Photos #2, #3 & #4 shows this made up with vintage fabric, thanks to Jennifer - read her fabulous blog here: http://www.thesewingroomalameda.com/blog/2017/8/22/sewing-my-gatsby-prototype-using-a-vintage-dress-as-my-muslin.
The other version shown was made in white linen with a handmade flower brooch pinned at the neckline. Directions for the brooch are NOT part of this pattern. Note that the white dress does not fit mannequin properly so the drape may look a bit distorted whereas Jennifer's fits like a glove - And, it's only her mock up. Wow!

Just gorgeous! I cut this paper pattern last night and was thrilled with the quality of the paper--not too heavy, not too light (picky detail, I know, but I like good paper for patterns). It is clear and easy-to-read. Also, the seller could not be sweeter!! This is my new favorite pattern source. :)

I found this pattern to be exactly as pictured. The instructions were easy to follow. I did make a few adjustments to the finished product by using snap instead of a zipper. I was also using it for a much small person but found it easy to adjust.

Love love LOVE this pattern! I made it out of 100% cotton in a 30's feedsack print. It's so comfortable I decided to make another one so I can live in these all summer.
